I will be asking this in the PC section too--- I want to ask a laptop question - partly PC vs Mac and partly what processor and amount of memory. I have had Macs since 1987. Presently, I have a Mac Pro which I bought in 2006. I also have a PC laptop, which I bought for work (before I retired) where tehy would not allow Macs on the network. I don't use a laptop much and I have a PC one - Sony with Pentium 4 (3.0 mhz) which is maxed out at 1 gig of memory. When I travel - I take photos. This one is really slow. When I have an image open in NX1.3 it took over 35 seconds for the screen to go gray when I checked the double threshold button. So, if I buy a PC, it probably will havec VISTA installed - what processor and how much memory? If I buy a Mac, which model, size screen, and memory. It will come with 10.5. Any opinions - I have CS2 on the laptop - will it work with VISTA?
