1. Is there a way to use vignette in lightroom with cropped images?
Can't help you with this as I don't use LR.
2. I'm looking for a new laptop. Does a core 2 duo T5250 (1.6 ghz) 2Gb Ram laptop good enough for lightroom? Currently I'm using a pentium D 2.4ghz with only 1gig of RAM desktop and it's very slow when used with lightroom.
Hmm, that ought to be plenty good for LR and PSCS3. But again, I don't use LR.
3. I might be thinking of going to mac. For those who switch from windows to mac. How long does it take you to get used/learned to mac's function? I tried them at an apple store and it feels hard to use especially with the one button mouse.
The "Mighty" mouse is actually a three button, you just can't see the right one. It's there and takes some getting use to (which I never did). The 360 degree scroll is the third button, if I recall correctly. Personally, I like my $15 Logitech optical 3-button scroll mouse better.
4. If I were to switch to mac, does the regular macbook (not pro) be enough for lightroom?
MacBook is plenty for all photo work, just don't plan on doing any 3D gaming with it. Aperture is about the only app that relies extensively on the GPU (most of the others use the CPU), but even that is fine. I use Aperture on a Mac Mini, which has less of a GPU than the new MacBooks, and it runs fine. I don't think LR uses the GPU all that much, and I'm pretty sure that PSCS3 only minimally uses it.
"Raw" is not an acronym, abbreviation, nor a proper noun; thus, it should not be in capital letters.
