    No, the screen is too small. A desktop with a faster processor and big screen would be much better for that kind of stuff.

    before you jump the gun...

    You need to think about what you really need with the computer first. Do you need to have a computer with portability to it? I do agree...a standard macbook probably won't have enough hoo-rah to do what you need it to. But, you could get a macbook pro and have more than enough power to do all that good stuff :) But of course, if you can deal with a desktop, then by all mean go ahead and pick one up. Cheers!

    I run dreamweaver all the time along with photoshop iMovie, Pages, itunes and a chrome with a bunch of tabs running all the time and my macbook runs smoothly. I think you'll be fine. If you are too worried about it just pay for the extra ram.

    I'm running a 3 year old macbook with photoshop, light gaming, virtualising linux OSes, programming etc... with no problems. The new macbook would probably do just fine, although of course a desktop will be a lot faster for the same money.

    (NB, regarding screen size, I run a 24" monitor off mine when doing more serious work. If mine can cope with that without issue, so can the new one!)
