Now, am guessing it's due to my Adobe suite. Either way, it runs slow. I do advertising in university, and I do a lot go graphic work. I had PS CS4 on my Windows laptop, and it ran perfectly. Since I was doing a lot more graphical work, I forked out and bought the new, and current MBP 13". I went for a Mac because they're supposed to be brilliant at multi-tasking, as well as the fact 'professionals' supposedly use Mac's for graphic work. However, if I have Photoshop CS5.5 open with iTunes running and Safari, the Mac lags. I figured it might have been due to the combination of all three being open, so I closed all but Safari and opened up Illustrator. It took about 5mins to open. Then it was really laggy, and trying to open up files took forever. I then closed it, and re-opened Photoshop. Tried to open a PSD and that took a few mins to open. Everything else seems fine, so am guessing it's the Adobe software? I've also noticed when any Adobe software and iTunes is playing a song, the song skips. What's going on? Another thing that's bugging me with Photoshop... I again don't know whether it's the application on my Mac, but when I resize a brush, and go to use it on my canvas, there's no outline for the brush. I have to keep on adjusting the sizes until it works again. Finally, if I'm using a tool like the clone stamp, and attempt to change my tool, Photoshop just does't recognise I'm trying to change tool, and each time I click a specific icon, it thinks I'm still on the canvas and clones in something. Flash is also very laggy. Especially on video's.
