Re: A Macbook would be very cool

Having been used to scanning 35mm film at 4800 samples per inch, and medium format at 3200 spi with my Minolta Scan Multi Pro on much older computer kit in my later film days, frankly the relatively small RAW files from the 5D II and 7D comparatively whizz along even on relatively modest kit.

WRT graphics cards, although there's no benefit whatsoever from super-duper graphical ability in normal photography as such, the later versions of PS (CS 4 and 5) use GPU acceleration to aid with normal processing, so as long as you use the right card you will see a speed benefit. At the end of the day, what you need to pay for depends on the premium you're prepared to pay for speed.
