    Hi- I'm replacing my (5 year old) G4 tower, and was thinking of getting the 17" Macbook Pro 2.44/ 2 GB/160 GB/ hi res. I'm a graphic/ website designer and mostly run Adobe CS2 (Illustrator, GoLive and Photoshop). I noticed on the Apple site that they're offering killer deals on CS3 with any computer purchase through 9/16. The price difference is good enough that it's worth doing even if I have to pay for Leopard in October (I think). Does anyone have any advice about timing? Also, is this laptop going to be powerful enough- especially if I use it for video editing, or should I be buying a tower again? I'm sort of nervous about making the move to a laptop for my primary work computer, but it would be sooooooo convenient. Any advice for a laptop newbie would be welcome. Thanks!
