I've heard that. I think someone told me that the process was using my PC hard drive as an intermediate stop along the way. I wouldn't know if that's true or not. It may, also/otherwise, depend upon the speed of one's PC and i5.
Regardless, if one downloads the images to the PC, one then either has to burn CD's (no thanks) or copy the images to the i5. That's still gonna take time, ain't it? The PC hard drive is definitely a temporary stopover in that case.

mapping performance is usually incredibly slow.
