I was looking on Apple's website and their page says that Aperture is compatible with the GMA 950. So, I am sure it RUNS on the MacBook, but what I am wondering is how well it runs on the MacBook... I don't need it to be blazingly fast since I am just into Photography as a hobby, but I would like it to run at least decently. I have heard various things at the Apple Store (ranging from "Oh, it works fine. I use it all the time" to "Oh, no. Don't use it on a MacBook. It's horrible"), so I really haven't gotten a good response on this topic. I plan on using PS CS3/maybe Illustrator CS3, but I am pretty sure those run fine on it since they don't really require a nice graphics card. But does Flash? If I got a MacBook, I would be getting it with a 2.16 GHz C2D and 2 GB of RAM.
