see that there has been a refresh of macbooks today.

I've got a photographer friend who is looking to buy a mac to run photoshop. i cant really advise him on photoshop since i have no experience with it.

he's cash strapped at the moment like a lot of people.

which mac would run photoshop comfortably?

All current gen MacBooks (and MBP's) can run photoshop flawlessly. Your friend just needs to make a decision on screen resolution.

That's true as long as you have plenty of RAM, 4GB is so cheap now i your working with photos or videos you'd be foolish not to upgrade.
