    Well the title says it all, is anyone using Dreamweaver on your MBA?

    Is the screen estate enough and is memory and cpu speed sufficient to make it useful?

    Anything unusual with DW, such as heat, or fan issues?

    I ran CS3 Photoshop and Dreamweaver on my original MBA, but it was very very slow. I hated that MBA.

    I now have a rev B MBA... It runs CS3.3 very well. In fact my new MBA runs pretty much everything faster than my MBP did... was a 2.33 GHz, 4 GB RAM, and 256 MB Graphics... so the SSD is what is really making my MBA fly.

    I didn't/don't have anything nice to say about the original MBA, but I cannot stop saying nice things about the new MBA. What a difference.

    So, I guess it depends on the MBA you are talking about as far as running Dreamweaver.

    That's been my concern all along with anything CS3. I can't afford any type of "LAG" while I'm running any of those programs. I try to take care of everything within a few hours, if not a couple of days; so time is critical. My Mac Pro and my MBP seem to be the workhorses, rather than my MBAir...

    Dreamweaver On MacBook Air...??

    To be fair... I use CS4 apps... I got the Design Premium and I have them all on my Mac Pro... unfortunately, my 128GB SSD is a bit small in my MBA... so I only have Photoshop, Fireworks, Illustrator & InDesign... On them, Photoshop is the slowest when you are adding some layers... but it is allot faster than my previous one (1.8 64GB) which was almost impossible to do anything labour intensive apart from presenting Keynote Presentations...

    I would think that Dreamweaver would run a ok...!! But hey whatever you think :apple:
