The issue in buying a laptop, don't know what's better — Mac or regular pc-laptop, and then put linux.)
Yes, I know that it is a perversion, but still interested in the opinion of the people who work in photoshop under Ubuntu or Linux in General what is the performance compared to the notorious and windows ( would be awesome ) MacBook Pro.
Work with a MBP and a desktop with ArchLinux. I think that will not surprise you that on a MacBook, with a smaller number of cores and RAM is much faster than under Linux in wine and virtualbox. But even that is not important. If you really need photoshop, not "pictures scribbled Yes, acne cover up", just try it under Linux, all questions will disappear immediately. And especially if you are planning to buy a thread Waco, which (let's be honest with ourselves) don't work well in Linux. Decide what you priority. Photoshop important and you need 90% of the time — perhaps there is a sense to overpay for a Mac, the photoshop launch times a week, the rest of the write in Python — you can use any.
The risk of being beaten and misunderstood adherents from both OS, but it was usually on habré :)

In my opinion and experience, it's not about performance and iron will, and working capacity in photoshop, because using it under Linux is extremely convenient because of the features of windowed mode. I couldn't go on this, and to adapt a photoshop in Linux ) My recommendation — get a MAC!

Was photoshop on Ubuntu, now MPB is a huge difference under Linux is impossible to work in photoshop, firstly due to the fact that (or I something not so did, or not yet finished) does not work the text tool that is photoshop crashes, second I have just a couple of weeks no longer start. If FSH standards worked under Ubuntu, finally would have killed a computer with Windows at work :)
