    I'm buying a MacBook Pro for a relative. This person does light web development (HTML/CSS/JS) and photoshop work that applies to web development (no super huge magazine type photo editting). MacBook's are expensive so I want to make sure I make the right choice on the matter.

    Can the Dual Core 13" MacBook Pro run photoshop for these purposes and still preform well? If so do I need the 3.0 i7 Dual Core? or is the 2.6 i5 good enough?

    Would you recommend 16GB of ram? or will 8GB be fine?

    Thanks so much for your help

    Base model should be fine for that use. So the dual core with 8GB.
