    Yea that should run great, my macbook is slightly better and I can run CS5 with no issues, unless I have more than 3 CS5 apps up it runs pretty good.

    Upgrading My Ram to 4 GB???
    Thanks for the reply. I hate to ask this because I understand we shouldn't be posting a question there's already a thread started about. But, I'm new here and don't know how to find an existing thread that will help. So I'm gonna ask.
    It was mentioned upgrading to 4GB memory would help run PS CS4 and Lightroom 3. But I think I only have two slots and each can only handle 1GB each. If Im wrong, and I hope I am, can you let me know?? Thanks.

    I really want CS5 however, even if I could upgrade to 4GB ram, I think the graphics card is an issue. I've been told by Mac support that its attached to the logics board and can't be upgraded. Does this sound right?
