    I just brought home a Canon LiDE 500F scanner from The Apple Store. They said it will work with my Intel Macs, but I have seen posts that it didn't used to and Canon's own site does not mention Intel compatibility.

    Anybody know if they have fixed the driver?

    Should I return it?

    Image capture will likely only give you a fraction of the functionality. I got the supplied software to run on my MBP (10.5.2) but I wished I hadn't. It is awful. I am sending the scanner back - there must be something better than this for Mac users...
