Photoshop CS6 dazzles with technical prowess and artistic inspiration

• Cannot disable desktop-blocking background
• Dual display support not as good as previous versions
• New serialization/copy protection method makes enterprise deployment much more difficult
• 1280 x 800 minimum resolution limits use in education and other environments using data projectors
And one further pro:
• Improved print dialog allows larger preview
We've weighed the pros and cons of this new release, and as much as that new print dialog box would have made a great difference for us, the cons trump that. We'll continue to use Photoshop CS 5.1, even though we already own licenses for CS 6 through an upgrade subscription program.

Pro photographers would do well with less costly apps designed for photographers such as Apple Aperture or Adobe Lightroom (oops, excuse me, Adobe renamed it to "Photoshop Lightroom" to capitalize on the Photoshop name - go figure). For less that $700 I have Aperture and PhotoTools plug-in, which - for a photographer's needs - does everything I can do in PhotosShop just as well, faster and easier - and truckloads of photographer-centric tools and abilities.
Photoshop is designed now for Graphic Designers, not Photographers. Don;t get me wrong here, I have Photoshop and it's excellent software. But as a photographer, using Photoshop is actually too rare an occasion to justify even the upgrade cost for the "standard" edition.
Only my own 2-cent comment here.

You have to remember, an Imac is essentially a laptop on a stand without a cover. A laptop will never have the power a full size desktop will have.
