Right now my husband and I can not affor to buy two Macs, I want one so that I can get beyond PSE 6.0 with Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Lightroom and my husband is interested in the Garageband and 1 or 2 other music programs for the Macs.
We have othe PC's in our home for surfing the web and other small time stuff but we are trying to figure out if one macbook with the right specs could allow us both to do what we want to do until we can afford another Mac.
Here is one from Best Buy that fits our curent budget - http://www.bestbuy.com …uct&cp=1&id=1218024598155
Would this be a reasonable choice or do we need to step up on the specs?
I have a one year old gateway that is a running on a 32bit Vista home premium OS (2gb ram). I had a student version of CS3 and LightRoom installed on it yesturday and it seems like its going to run quite slow - do you know of any options I have for getting it to run faster or should I give up on the idea of running CS3 and LightRoom on my Gateway?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or advice you care to share ~
