After using PC's all my life, I'm finally thinking of getting a 2.4Ghz MacBook with 4GB RAM mainly to run Aperture 2 and Photoshop. Anyone with any experience on this? Any problems with running these programs on a MacBook with these specs - speed, etc.?

Any inputs would be greatly appreciated!

P.S. I was initially considering the iMac's but the colour washout on the 20" display and uneven colours on the 24" display have seriously dissuaded me.. I will get and external monitor if I go with the MacBook.
QUOTE Thanks

I would say if you are planning to use those apps a lot it might be worth you getting the MBP, to have the graphics card the MacBook is lacking.
