I always enjoy seeing how these threads twist and turn. Who would have know a DIR debate would get started? Keep up the needling.

In Topic: Express Card Compact Flash Reader

I just received mine from Adorama yesterday. I dislike how it sticks out of the side of the laptop versus the stowed away configuration of the PCMCIA card reader. Glad to hear it is faster though. At least there is a beneficial trade off.

In Topic: Do the new Apple Laptops Cut It?

I took the plunge last weekend and purchased a MacBook Pro. I installed Aperature this weekend, watched the tutorial, and proceeded to handle a load of NEF files and large JPG's. It worked fabulously and very fast compared to what I am used to. If any of you are considering this combination, I encourage you to go for it. I have not been disappointed!

I am using the current MBP 17" with my D2Xs files, converting with both Lightroom and the Adobe Creative Suite 2.

In all cases it has been fast enough, and as fast as any PC I had previously.

I just finished both a Pro shoot of 1200 images and a dive trip of 1800. Speed has rarely been an issue.

So what I am to hear is that you are pushing the big NEF files around, converting in the two applications, and you are not pulling your hair out waiting on the machine to deal with these 1000+ images in your database for each shoot with your D2x.

That would make me happy. I have been grinding away with my G4 Powerbook and it takes a lot of the fun out of the hobby for me.

So I am to understand that by using CS2 I would be served more speedy file processing if I was running a Windows based notebook or desktop?
