I use PS CS2. I would not bother with above CS2. CS3+ are very demanding and so over rated..
CS2 runs smoothly even on this netbook. the Asus eee 1000HE.

Oh, and if someone recommends me one, lets keep it under 400. Under 500 max.

I also hear the Acer Aspire Ones are nice.


I bought the original Eee PC when it first came out, and it had some variant of Linux on it. The original Eee PCs weren't very fast (Something like a 500 MHz processor) but I put XP lite on it, and it ran very well.

Think there is a 60 dollar performance difference between the N270 to the N280?

I found two Asus ones that are the exact same, but 60 dollar price difference because of the processors.

As you can see, differences between the Intel Atom N280 and N270 are minor, which is expected since the CPUs are very similar. Even N280’s faster FSB doesn’t help much in benchmarks, as well as in real world use. I haven’t noticed any difference in responsiveness and speed when using the netbooks for web surfing, e-mail checking or watching Youtube videos.

Not worth the $60 IMO.
