    Will photoshop run smoothly on a entry level aluminum macbook. I wont be dealing with giant files. I will just be doing simple photoshop things for fun. I just want to know if it will run without slowing down the computer.

    CS4 is more reliant on the gpu than cs3 is. I can't find any benchmarks on cs4 and the new gpu in the MacBooks.

    I installed Photoshop CS4 (last alpha beta mind you) last week and it ran fantastically well.

    I have the 2.4 GHz with 4 GB of Ram.

    Used a decent amount of ram but other than that it runs great.
