    Good morning all,

    I am about to pick up a used 1.66Ghz Intel Core Duo Mini and was wondering will my version of Photoshop install on the machine.

    I am currently running it on a G4 1.25Ghz Mini with 1GB of ram works just fine.

    Thanks

    PS. It's just Photoshop CS not the creative suite

    Yeah it'll run, but because it will run under Rosetta you get a performance hit. Compensate by buying lots of RAM.

    Intel Macs will run older PPC software. See this page.

    Yes it wil install. It will be faster in use on your old G4 though.

    CS3 will be faster on the Intel.

    the Core 2 Duo machine might be close to the performance of the G4.

    On my 2.4 GHZ Core duo with 3 GB of memory the CS Photoshop is way faster than my Powerbook 1.5 GHZ G4.

    This was not my experience. PSCS ran very well on a core duo mini, once rosetta was up and running.
