If you are going to edit images, the macbook will lack in the display department. If your budget does not allow for a MBP, I would at least buy a previous generation refurbished MBP.

Congratulations. My problems with my Powerbook G3 1.33 helped me earn a new MBP 2.4. I see it as a reward for having patience and not raising my voice when talking to Apple.
