    Has anyone tried running Lightroom 3 on a MacBook Air? My main concern is the 2gb memory limitation.

    It'll run, probably would be okay wth 2GB RAM if you don't work with large images. The CPU might be a bit limiting though- the new 2010 processing engine seems to run noticeably slower on LR3 than the old processing engine. I noticed a definite increase in "slider lag" on my MBP13.

    Where am I???
    Really? The only slowdown I have noticed in LR3 vs. LR2 is in the rendering of previews, which does take longer (and this has been confirmed by Adobe). I've found that the actual sliders and switching between modules is FAR more responsive in LR3.
