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

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

  • Best Answer:

    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!!!
