    Hi everyone,

    Sorry to ask, but has anyone tried Pixelmator on the Macbook Airs? (11" 1.6 i5 4GB and the 13" base model)?

    Does it run smoothly?

    Thanks!

    Yes. It runs perfectly. Though I wish they would hurry up and release v.2

    Ditto! I bet they got a bunch of people to buy into their v.2 promise.

    How is the Gamut on the MacBook Air? How does it compare to the MacBook Pro?

    Guilty as charged. I saw the feature-set of 2.0 and had to ante up. The Pixelmator boys will make it happen.

    Next I expect to see the fruits of this little domain.

    yea it runs smoothly even on my base 11" with 4GB and 128GB FS.

    it's much cheaper than photoshop too. not as advanced as PS but it suits my workflow.

    Once calibrated the Color gamut on the 11" is very good. I calibrated all my monitors so they look the same, including my Cintiq 21ux and older ACD 24".

    The MacBook air screen on my 11" is Samsung. The 13" screen is more prone to Color shift if your not viewing it from it's sweet spot and you can visibly see the Color change tint if you adjust the tilt. It may not be much of a change, but it's enough of one of your working on a color sensative project, the 11" seems to suffers less due to the narrower screen and higher pixel density.
