    I'm hoping to get advice on which Adobe CS4 to get: I need Illustrator, Photoshop, Flash and Dreamweaver. However my macbook is only 32 bit so that rules out CS5 and the financial help probably won't stretch to cover a newer mac.
    Can anyone confirm which version I need? I'm finding conflicting answers even on the few sites that still sell it.:confused:

    I only have 2 gigs Ram in this Macbook Intel Core Duo (high as it will go - first generation) and currently have around 14 gig hard drive space. I might be able to up that by shifting stuff to an external drive. I've also considered installing the Adobe itself on one, although that too, has conflicting info.

    Right now I'm running Leopard, but I have the Snow Leopard upgrade and plan to use it soon.

    I know it's a bit of a squeeze, but thanks to my old Imac I'm used to juggling external drives and the like. (Although obviously a newer mac would be better.);)

    The CS4 apps will run on your MacBook with OS X 10.5, yes. They even run on my old PowerPC iMac.

    Well this is complicated. Anyone know what government approved EVA websites still stock the CS4? I was getting financial help to get it but I'm told that's the catch.:(
