So, I graduated this past May with a degree in Communication Studies. I thought I was going to come out and fall into a great job...not the case. So, I've gone back to a local community college to take some design courses. Not only because the jobs I want, you need to know Dreamweaver, CS, etc., but because I need to stay under my parents insurance, because I'm diabetic. CS4 with everything I need is 398. I have a 2.2 Macbook with 1gb ram and when I had the CS trial it was slow and I got the beach ball. Here arises the problem, my current notebook doesn't want to work well with CS. I am looking for a computer, the cheapest option, that is not Windows. I am looking into the 1499.99 (1399.99 w/student discount) 24" iMac. 4gb ram, 2.66 ghz, etc. Will this be enough to run PS and keep me happy? Is the 20" alright? I really want that extra 4"'s because I will probably put it in my room as a tv/computer. What would you do, I have to buy the software. I don't want to upgrade my plastic MB. I'm looking for the best option, because I can't stand the 13.3" MB, especially if I'm looking for PS ability. Last question, would a 13"/15" Unibody MBP be ok? If I can get away with a 13.3 MBP, I'd probably just go ahead and get an external. If you we're going through this and trying to save money (without upgrading my current computer), what would you do?
