    Hi,
    I decided to buy Mac Mini, maybe the newest version (maybe this summer), but, I don't need play any games or making movies, but I am Photographer and Graphic, so I need work in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and Lightroom or Apple Aperture.
    So I am asking, is the Mac Mini suitable for this work?
    Thank you for your responses.

    It's capable now so after the i5/i7 refresh which should be soon it should fly through.

    The Mini has been more than good enough for the work you do for at least 2 years. Load it with 4-8 GB of RAM and you're good to go.

    dumping 8 GB of RAM into that will have you running nicely with any prosumer/professional level use of photo editing. The RAM is really easy to upgrade so I would suggest going with the stock mini (with 2 GB of RAM) and upgrading to 8 GB for $100 from OWC
