To give a little back info, I am a professional photographer. I deal with images varying in size from 8 megapixes to 50 megapixels. I use Photoshop cs2 currently on a windows laptop with the following specs: Pentium 4 CPU 3.20Ghz 448Mb Ram 80Gb Hard drive I have always been told that Macs use thier processing power and ram far more efficiently than a PC. Since my laptop has started acting up I am looking to possibly change over to Mac. Bad thing is I am on a rather tight budget. What kind of specs should I be looking for to meet or exceed the performance(photoshop wise) of my laptop? Would a quicksilver G4 or a Mini be a big downgrade in performance? I am truely sorry if this topic has been beat into the ground, please forgive a Mac Newb. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
