    I have a 15" MBP 3,1 (Sept 2007)
    (Intel C2D 2.4GHz, 4MB Cache, Santa Rosa, 4GB Ram, 500GB Storage @5400RPM, GeForce 8600M GT 256MB VRAM)

    I am a student (returning to school) and so I qualify for the Adobe discount for the Creative suite. I already have CS3 (Master Collection) and am considering buying CS5 (Design Premium).

    I was wondering if I should notice any performance decrease/increase and any general thoughts if it's worth it or not.

    Thanks and al the best.

    Get it, no doubt about it at all. The improvements and general feeling of solidity with InDesign alone make it completely worth it, although it's a little more sluggish on my Mac which isn't as new as yours. Thoroughly recommended.

    CS5's new features are absolutely incredible.
    Content aware on its own is phenomenal.
