    Anyone use Adobe CC with the new MacBook? I am really considering buying a new MacBook and need to be able to use these programs.

    I ran InDesign and Illustrator with no problems at all. Much faster than the 21.5" iMacs with old hard disk drive's on campus.

    Photoshop and Lightroom seem to work mostly fine. Use them on mine all the time.

    I can't speak for Adobe products because I recently switched to Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer and they run extremely well. I can't feel the difference between my previous 2014 core i7 MBA compared to the 1.2GHz rMB. So far I am extremely pleased with the performance of this tiny machine.

    Yes, I was surprisingly impressed, too, when I ran InDesign. Sadly the small screen proved the deal-breaker for me.

    The screen is small indeed. Although, coming from a non-retina screen, I really like the option of increasing the resolution beyond the default 1152x720. Also, when I'm using Affinity products or Blender for example, I'm working on an external screen anyway.

    No issues as well....I use LR and PS (cc editions) in my workflow and it's fine. I also run parallels (Win10) in the background for work. Impressive little machine.
