  1. Yes.
    Are you sure you want a Mac? I know they are cool but they really aren't that great for architectural applications. The bootcamp/parallels thing is a pain, the tech is 6 months behind intel based pcs and ATI graphics leave a lot to be desired. Get a workstation class laptop with a quadro for the same price! Not to mention CUDA is starting to come to the forefront for render engines and even photoshop.
