  1. Steve’s RDF almost got to me today… I was seriously considering buying a blacck MacBook until reality set back in and I remembered that all of Adobe and Macromedia’s software aren’t universal yet.

  2. “Will the new MacBook (white or black) even run Photoshop or will it overheat and melt down trying?”

    It will run Photoshop just fine, at about iBook G4 1Ghz performance.

  3. Brandon,

    I use Macromedia Suite 8 on my intel iMac, runs just fine and i don’t think the UB would make that much difference. the same chip is in the macbook so it won’t be that much slower!!

  4. “I use Macromedia Suite 8 on my intel iMac, runs just fine and i don’t think the UB would make that much difference.”

    Dude, it will run at least three times faster as a Universal Binary and you know it.

    Still, I believe you when you say it runs just fine. These Intel chips are SO much faster than the old G4 stuff; the Intel Core Duo 2Ghz can basically emulate a G4 at 1.2Ghz performance levels.
