    Question regarding adobe's collection
    Hello ppl,
    I'm a web designer who wants to switch into the Mac world.
    My only concern is the actual performance of Adobe's dreamweaver/photoshop/fireworks performance while running all 3 on a typical "latest" macbook(1066mhz versions).

    Any guidance/real life experiences would be highly appreciated

    Best regards,
    Chris

    ouch, a small typo here,

    Specs:
    2,4Ghz 15" unibody
    I think if you get the 2.4Ghz MacBook and spec it up to 4Gb of Ram then it will definitely handle fine, might even do with the 2.0Ghz, but I would recommend getting the extra 2gigs of Ram (not nessesarily from Apple though)

    although using PS fulltime on a 13inch screen might get a little unfomfortable, it does have a good resolution but still

    Specs:
    15" MacBook Pro, 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 8 GB RAM, 750 GB HD
    I've been running CS2 on my MBP, which is the generation previous to the unibody models, and I haven't had any issues. Admittedly, I don't do a whole lot of intense graphics work, but all the apps work fine.

    I am a fulltime web designer using a MacBook Pro (the gen before the unibody) and I can assure you its more than adequate for this purpose.

    Specs:
    MBP 2.3 Ghz 4GB RAM 860 GB SSD, iMac 3.4 GHz Intel Core i7 32GB RAM, Fusion Drive 1TB
    I'm on a White MB 2.4 GHz with 4GB of RAM and I run the whole suite Bridge, Photoshop, Flash, Illustrator and Dreamweaver almost all the time and no signs of a hiccup yet.
