Dear forum I am a long time lurker here, and this is my first post. I have been considering a new laptop since about christmas, and the macbook air is currently very enticing. I have a little sum of money coming in july, and I was planning to finally upgrade my trusty old Powerbook G4 (which I have loved to death) to a MBA. My main usage is light photo editing on the road, as well as regular office work, in addition to surfing and other light tasks. I mainly use only three applications - Photoshop CS - Lightroom 2 - MS Ofiice 2003 I have no intentions (or money) to upgrade these applications as they do the job just perfectly for me. Assuming the long-rumored SB MBAs will come pre-installed with lion I am left with the question: - Will this software work on Lion? - If not, Do you think the Sandy Bridge MBA will run Snow Leopard? Should I jump the gun and buy a Snow Leopard MBP right now, before Lion comes? I'd rather have a lighter computer, (PBG4 and MBP13 weighs about the same) but if I have to spend another $1000 for unnescessary software update, I can live with the extra weight... Appreciate any input!
