    and am wondering if i'm going to see a significant speed increase from my slow G4 Silverbullet if i upgrade to an intel macbook or imac when using photoshop. i don't do any crazy editting right now, mostly mockups for web sites and things. and thoughts? i know there are a ton of benchmarks, but i really just want to know if rozetta emulation is faster than my G4.

    I was reading through the latest MacWorld magazine last night and they made mention that no, rosetta emulation is slower than a powerpc machine running the same app natively.

    Whether or not this inclusive of all scenarios I can't accurately state. I tend to get the impression that rosetta is quite slow.
