Optimised Configurations

A question came in via e-mail about the best hardware set-up for running Photoshop. Aside from the obvious Mac oriented sarcasm, there are definite ways to speed up Photoshop.

George Middleton wrote an excellent piece last year called "Photoshop Acceleration Basics 2.4 - A MacGurus Guide to Photoshop Performance Acceleration."

OK, I know it's Mac-centric. But, there is valuable info there which can be useful for Windows users as well. He's included some helpful charts of performance data that can be used for your purchasing justifications (isn't a 7,200 RPM drive good enough for your start-up disk?).
