    I think you will find that the mini is "somewhat" restrictive, but I got by on one for a couple of years running Lightroom 2 and Photoshop CS4. Max out the memory, though...

    I cursed that machine every time I opened a large format scan, by the way. (Open photoshop -> get coffee. Add sharpening -> get dinner. Save a layered tiff -> wait an hour.) Intel mini, 2 GB ram, 2.0 GHz Core 2 Duo processor. It could really have used at least twice the ram, four times if it were available at the time.

I think my lack of knowlege will lead to using the trial and seeing if there is anything in it for me- thanks again to all who replied.
    Make sure you go through the online tutorials (for CS2, CS3, CS4 and CS5) that are still available or you won't begin to discover all that is in CS5 (from CS!) in the short space of the trial period.
    Thanks,

    Re: Aperture- compared to Photoshop PS5

    I've never used Aperture, but I can say that Lightroom is a wonderful tool for organizing and minor edits. I can't even begin to imagine working without it at this point. I assume that aperture is the same.

    Photoshop, however, is indispensable for complex editing. (layers, masks, etc).
