    Photoshop CS3 is out and is an universal binary. Is 1GB RAM enough for running CS3 smoothly(files of about 100MB) and Maya at an acceptable speed on a Macbook Pro?

    Specs:
    15" MBP Core Duo 2.0GHz 1.5GB, 20" iMac C2D 2.4GHz 4GB, PowerPC G4 500MHz 512MB
    I run CS (1) on my MBP Core Duo with 1.5GB ram without any problem. I realize that doesn't directly answer your question, just trying to throw an option out there for you.

    Specs:
    MacPro quad-core 2.66gHz, Leopard, 9gb RAM, one 250gb, two 500gb and three 1tb internal SATA drives
    Max out your RAM
    I can't speak for Macbook Pros but I went from a dual-core 3ghz PC notebook with 2gb RAM, 120gb internal drive and four external drives to a MacPro because the notebook couldn't keep up with Photoshop CS2 or CS3 Beta. My MacPro has 5gb RAM and four internal drives running CS3 and I'm pleased with performance.

    I have Photoshop set to take 80% of RAM and it takes needs it to reduce (not eliminate) scratch drive activities. Photoshop CS3 is a very RAM intensive program. You can run it on a notebook but you want to max out the RAM and perhaps use external drives to provide scratch space.
