    Wanting the size of the 13, but I want to make sure that the 13 can handle the graphics of CS5.
    MBP will not be my main computer - Have the imac for that. But I do want to be able to do some editing on the fly.
    Also hoping that the BSS starts Monday.

    What CS5 apps are you primarily using? Photoshop should be fine unless you get into dozens of layers. InDesign is slow and clunky by nature, and I don't know about apps like Premiere.

    Works pretty well on my 2010 13'' with only a 5400 RPM HDD in terms of opening it up and managing files once inside. (Photoshop)

    It works fine. If anything add more RAM or purchase a SSD. However SSD are pricey for the larger drives.

    I use Photoshop CS5 on my 13" 2010 MBP and I've never had any problems except for a few seconds lag opening VERY large images.

    I run the CS5 master collection, Aperture 3, HDR Pro, Parallels 6, windows 7, Project 2007....well you get the idea. It works great.

    CSx scale with what you want to accomplish. Obviously you will not do any uncompressed video editing , live color grading or working with multi gigabyte raw images from satellites. But if youre like the 80 percent of folks I know who "got" photoshop somehow and are doing very light photo retouches or the occasional banner or sig, the 13" wont limit you.
