So is it a good idea to purchase the new Macbook Air if I work only in Adobe Creative Suite? Money is an issue with me, so I'd like to get the most for my money. I have a Macbook Pro with a 1.83 GHz Intel Core Duo and 2 GB 667 MHz SDRAM that I got five (!) years ago. It is only good for web surfing anymore, so I really need to purchase a new one sooner rather than later.

Thanks for any help!

No, I wouldn't do that. There's no problem with the CPU/GPU and depending on your requirements you could probably live with the limited disk space, but the screen is not suitable for graphics design.
