Very useful that the Lightroom disc comes with a the Mac version. CS3 would be my main concern, especially with the upgrade disc. Don't forget you'll need to install an earlier version of CS or CS2 before you can install the CS3 upgrade. The earlier version would also have to be a Mac version.

That's what I meant; they're flogging Quad Core PCs and they don't work yet!

iMacs are superb, I'll admit. In fact, who persuaded you to look at them in the first place, big fella..?

The turbo fans are long gone. I just don't want to hear my machine running, thassall

My friendly PC tech told me you should clean out your PC fortnightly, because dust compromises the cooling of your processor and clogs the outlets as well as the PSU. So I want one that cleans itself, or at least for you to come around with your duster to clean my PC and then make coffee.

Mac users don't use mugs, they use china teaware or crystal flutes for drinking coffee or tea...

No Pol you don't need to install a early version of CS just have the serial number handy of an early version.

Do you think we should sell the idea to the computer companies or just build one ourselves? You could be a very rich man! Sounds perfect!
It'll never sell in the UK unless the coffee gets changed for Tea

I work in an alcove off the front room and when the processor gets hit and the fans start, 'er indoors has to turn the telly up! I do not jest!

Perhaps I should get the WD40 out?
