Hello Everyone, I'm still tossing around going Mac in my next round of hardware updates. To try it out I'm thinking about getting a Mac Mini and see how I like the differences in OS X - especially now that Win 8 looks like another one of those WT...? moments. As always there are issues. I have the PC version of CS5. Lightroom 3 should work on both, PC and Mac if I'm not mistaken. For the test phase and until I upgrade to a little more serious hardware I'm not willing to buy more Adobe licenses or upgrades. So my goal would be to run LR3 natively in OS X and then from there launch into PS CS5 under Parallels (running XP 32 bit?) to do one by one edits. I'd also need to run XP (or Win 7 if absolutely necessary) in Parallels to have access to Office 2003 which I need for work. Does this work? What are the pit falls? Will Parallels eat resources even if I don't use any Win programs? If so is there a way to turn it off if I go on to work on something different, such as launch Cubase natively which will need all available resources? What are the minimum requirements in a Mac Mini to mac this work for now? I'm thinking about getting the base model and add more memory (8GB?) and a SSD myself.
