    i m thinking to buy it but i m not sure if is the right computer;
    i m going to use it with software's such as:adobe illustrator,photoshop,3d max,after effects,flash

    so my question is what do you think?is it going to work good?

    Is it true that ADOBE Creative Suite doesn't work good(slowly) on Mac computers?why?
    Is it going to work better and faster with new Adobe CS3,please?:confused:

    If you are thinking of running 3D programs Macbook Pro is good, however 3ds Max doesn't work on macs as it is Windows only. Maya, Maxon Cinema or Newtek Lightwave are Windows and Mac compatible. Adobe's programs can run on either the Macbook or Macbook Pro but 3D will need the dedicated graphics card capabilities. I personally run Maya on my Macbook Pro and I love the performance on it although I would like a Mac Pro. Adobe's creative suite does run a bit slow, but Adobe is announcing new creative suites on Tuesday, so by this summer those new suites should be shipping and will be Intel Mac compatible. The reason Adobe's creative suite runs slowly is because in Jan 2006 Apple began uses Intel processors in there computers. Prior to this Apple used IBM PowerPC processors and Adobe decided instead of patching the current creative suite to be compatible they were going to wait til they could release CS3 which will be released sometime soon.
