I am looking to purchase one of the new 15" Macbook Pro 2.2's for general use and on location photography. I have a G5 desktop with 24" wide screen for critical editing in Lightroom & PS. I would like to be able to load a whole shoot of Canon 5d raw image files, while on location, on to the Macbook & into lightroom for client viewing, and maybe some simple corrections. I am wondering if the base model 2.2 with 2gb of ram would do the trick. Has anyone used this combo yet? I know the 17" gives more real estate and is a faster machine, but for occasional use, I'm not sure I can justify the extra "grand", though I may be better off in the longrun.
I've also heard rumours that Lightroom 1.1 will enable me to load the files from the macbook to the desktop with adjustments intack. That would be cool.
