Right now I run CS2 and Macromedia 8 suites on my iBook with 512mb of ram. When i get a MBP, will it run CS2 better than my iBook? I plan on going 4gb ram by january. Will that make it better? or does RAM not affect Rosetta performance? I'd love to go CS3 but that expense just isn't in my budget, and i only bought CS2 a year ago so i don't feel i've got my money's worth yet. Its also an education version so i have no upgrade path. Photoshop performance is one of the main reasons i want a new system, but if there are no significant gains (or a drop in performance which would be unbearable) I might get a macbook so that i can afford CS3. Appreciate all the feedback as usual. Sorry for making so many posts on here... some of you forumers should charge me for all the advice i get.
