    If you're looking to use Photoshop CS5/6 and other graphic software, I would suggest at LEAST the 15" macbook pro with a 4GB memory and 2.2 GHz core. Definitely stick with this if you want to go mobile - a laptop. If you're looking for something permanent that won't leave your home, go for the iMac - either the 24 or 27" would work as they're both memory beasts and can handle amazing amounts of software. If you're looking into the pro, I would wait until the fall as rumors suggest that a new line of these are coming out at WWDC in early June. Hope this helps!
