I went into the Apple store a week ago all ready to buy a shiny new MacBook, 'til I told the Specialist why I wanted it... I'm a web designer, so I'll be running most of Adobe Creative Suite 3 - flash, photoshop, fireworks, dreamweaver... He said that completely ruled out the Macbook, because those programs would pretty much freeze and/or shut it down, and that I needed an MBP. The MBP is stretching my budget a smidge, but with the education discount (I also teach), it's doable. The thing is, I wanted the lighter, smaller MB for something a bit more portable. It won't be my main computer, I also have a 20" iMac, but I will still want enough power to work away from my home office. I'm also waffling on the whole update issue... last year, a month after I bought my iMac, Apple released a new version. Ugh. But my HP laptop is on its last legs, so I'll be looking to make the purchase fairly soon. Honestly, though, I suspect the Specialist was just trying to get me to spend an extra $600... So my question is... do you have an MB and run CS3? Is it really slow? I have no patience, so I want something fairly speedy and responsive. Or should I just bite the bullet and go for the MBP?
