I own a iMac 24" (Just before the new generation came out), so It's got 2gb of ram, 500gb HD, 7800 with 256mb memory, etc, etc. I'm a serious amateur photographer who is looking for the luxury of portability, not only for shooting, but for school and such. Before I spend cash on something overkill, I have some questions: 1) Does anyone know how well Aperture (my editing program of choice) runs on a standard MacBook? 2) If I do choose a standard Macbook (not a pro model), how well would things like Photoshop run on it? 3) Is it truly worth the money for the pro model, as compared to the standard? 4) And is there any performance difference between a white macbook and a black macbook? Or is it all aesthetics? My choices are as follows: Standard White MacBook with: 2.2 GHz processor 2gb of ram and Aperture preinstalled Costing around 1,750. Standard Black MacBook with: 2.2 GHz processor 2gb of ram Aperture preinstalled For 1,950 Macbook Pro with: 2.2 Ghz processor 2gb of ram 120 GB HD 128 video memory for 2,300 or a Macbook pro with: 2.4 ghz processor 2gb of ram 160 HD 256 vid. memory for 2,800. I would love to save money if at all possible. I'm not asking Aperture and Photoshop to be perfect, just quick enough to take some punishment. Thanks. also, I've seen the ADC discount, not eligible yet. Is it possible for me to get one of my buddies in college to sign up and let me pay? Or would they catch that shit?
