21 mp - How much computer is needed?

I currently shoot with an 8 megapixel 30D, and plan on buying the 5D2 (after it is tested and proven). This is a huge jump in file size and I am wondering if my computer will be able handle it, or, if not, how much computer is required.

I realize that there are a lot of variables in computer speed/processing power, and am not the most computer savvy person, but in general; how much RAM and what speed of processor is required to work with 21 megapixel files efficiently?

Would something like a new MacBook Pro with a 2.5 ghz processor and 2gb of memory cut it?

To all you 1Ds or MF owners, your feedback would be appreciated.
