    i tried mac and i like them but i never had them before , i love taking pictures i got a dslr camera and i use photoshop alot and im wondering if the macbook would work just fine? i never use illustrator or would never use final cut
    then i would just use it for the internet and work at school
    i travel alot thats why im thking about the macbook instead of the imac but im just wondering if photoshop work greats without a video card

    Photoshop doesn't depend on the GPU at all. However, there is as yet no Universal version of Photoshop so it doesn't perform too well on an intel machine. I run PS Elements on my MacBook in Rosetta (2GB RAM) and it's ok but you wouldn't want to do it regularly!

    As soon as PS is Universal it'll be fine on an MB I'm sure.

    A few months. Version CS3 is universal, but it's only a beta right now. You can download it if you have a registered version of CS2.

    I have a core duo Macbook 2ghz with 512 MB ram... it's fine with CS3. It doesn't need a discrete GPU, but I would def get more ram than i have. a gig and you should be good to go.
