Hello fellow photogs,

Well, I'm in a dilema at the moment. My old computer (still quite usable) is in need for a replacement. The only (real) reason for this is that I've got PS CS4 and LR 2.4 waiting to be loaded up (currently running CS3 and LR 2.2). The reason they are waiting is because my AMD cpu is too old (I think/know) to be able to handle the program instructions. When LR 2.0 rolled out I was one of those numerous end users who could not do Virtual Copies (and some other things) and this was due to the fact that the cpu was AMD and of a particular age. Luckily the Adobe people listened (yes, they do do this when enough people bit..er, complain) and came up with a fix on this. Now, I'm not absolutely sure that CS4 and LR 2.4 absolutely *need* me to switch up but just considering the speed and age of my current 'box'...and decent pricing out now for the new/faster/better computers I'm really considering it...and squirreling away the money needed.

So here's the short of it...

I'm not so asking for particular makes/models (although this would be helpful) but more so the generic question/answer to...
"Should I go with a new laptop or desktop?".

There are many pros/cons for each choice but, generally speaking, given today's technology...which way would you suggest?
