    I own a G5 desktop (2004) running CS3 and MacBook Pro (2006) 15.6" 2.16 ghz Intel Core 2 Duo. I want to upgrade my CS3 to CS5 but can't on my G5 since it is PowerPC, so I want to try it on my Intel based MacBook Pro instead. I can upgrade the memory to 3GB, but wanted to know from other users out there if Adobe CS5 will be super slow or could even work ok with my laptop? I'm trying to save a little money and time before purchasing a new intel desktop.
    Thanks in advance!

    It should run fine. CS usually isn't that intensive.

    CS5 works fine on a 2ghz C2D so long as you have at least 2gb RAM (preferably 4).

    Your other alternative is to see if you can find a cheap copy of CS4 which will run happily on both of your machines.
