Neither of the NYC apple stores has a single MacBook (not pro) on the floor running CS3. Their claim? It's not a pro computer, so it's not made to run pro programs. When I asked why not, he claimed it was the lack of a graphics card. When I mentioned that most of CS3 doesn't require a graphics card and doesn't make much use of it, he went on to say that apple is doing its customers a favor by including it on any of their floor models because its a 3rd party app, and that the system requirements as stated by adobe demand a dedicated graphics card*. So much for getting any hands-on experience with the computer that they want me to drop $1300 on. They'd rather push me to spend more on the pro. No offer of accommodation. No, "hey, it's a sunday morning and we're not too busy. come on in and we'll get you set up to try it out for a few minutes." Thanks apple. *Not entirely true. From Adobe's site: "Some 3D features in Adobe Photoshop CS3 Extended require an OpenGL 1.4 capable graphics card with at least 64MB of VRAM"
