I am about to purchase a current MacBook Pro: 15" 2.53 GHz
Everything is standard except I am going to have the 500GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm.

I am just worried about the graphics card working?

Will the program work well on this laptop?

Hope my questions clear!

    Welcome to Apple Discussions.

    Yes, here are the minimum requirements for CS5 on a Mac:

    • Multicore Intel processor with 64-bit support
    • Mac OS X v10.5.7 or v10.6.3; Mac OS X v10.6.3 required for GPU-accelerated performance
    • 2GB of RAM (4GB or more recommended)
    • 10GB of available hard-disk space for installation; additional free space required during installation (cannot install on a volume that uses a case-sensitive file system or on removable flash-based storage devices)
    • 7200 RPM hard drive for editing compressed video formats; RAID 0 for uncompressed
    • 1280x900 display with OpenGL 2.0–compatible graphics card
    • Adobe-certified GPU card for GPU-accelerated performance
    • Core Audio–compatible sound card
    •DVD-ROM drive compatible with dual-layer DVDs (SuperDrive for burning DVDs; external Blu-ray burner for creating Blu-ray Disc media)
    • QuickTime 7.6.2 software required for QuickTime features
    • Broadband Internet connection required for online services*

    When I went on the Adobe Website, I noted the "Adobe-certified GPU card for GPU-accelerated performance in Adobe Premiere Pro"

    Next to that on the web page was a link that read: "visit the Adobe Premiere Pro system requirements page for the latest list of supported cards "

    Once I clicked on the link, I compared the graphics card I will be getting with my Mac, to the graphics cards that Adobe "certified" the NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M that I will be getting does not fall on the list of the "approved" graphics cards. Will this effect the performance in some way?

    I would suggest contacting an Adobe reseller or Adobe directly to get clarification.

    Sorry I couldn't provide a more direct answer.
