What Mac and RAM configuration is appropriate for heavy photoshop use with large photo files?

Hi,
I'll be editing large format photography images with Adobes' Photoshop CS5 and Lightroom 3.
Thanks
Bob

    Adobe recommends 2GB of RAM, so even the Basic MacBook or Mac Mini will do.

    As for storage space, you can upgrade the basic MacBook to a 500GB or you could get a bigger External HDD.

    Hope this helps.

  • I would go with a minimum of 4GB of RAM in any Mac you buy. More is always better!!!
