    I currently have an iMac G5 that I'm looking to sell off to pay for part of a newer Intel iMac. I also have a full (legal) version of CS2 that I'm hoping to upgrade in the future. So here's my question:

    From what I understand, CS2 only runs in Rosetta, right? Would upgrading to CS3 (or even 4) allow it to run natively on an Intel machine, or would I still have to run Rosetta?

    I'm a graphic designer who does a lot of freelance work, so this will pretty much mean the difference between getting a new computer or not.

    yes, unless I'm missing something. The upgrade is the full deal. Not that it will run faster.
