Ok, So I just bought a nice happly little Macbook and I am going to be running 1.8GHZ processor and 2GB of ram.

I have Adobe CS2 for Windows and I was wondering is it going to boost my performace if I get the Mac version or does it really matter seen as how I am running in rossetta anywho.

THANK YOU ALL.... I am so excited for my new laptop!

-Todd

As what has been previously stated, Adobe CS2 will run slower on an Intel Based mac due to having to run through the Rosetta emulator.

You can only run the PC version if you install Windows via bootcamp. The PC version will not work in OSX and the Mac version will not work in Windows.

Oh god what confusion.

Applications are written for a specific OS. What do the requirements on the Adobe box say? "Requires Windows". It doesn't say "Requires Intel".

So when you get a mac, NONE of the windows software you own, and I mean NONE will work in that form on your mac. Rosetta is NOT a Windows to Mac Emulator, it is a PowerPC to Intel Emulator, so apps compiled on a powerpc can be run on an intel chip.

Code:
Intel -----------------------------------PowerPC
