Hi,

Yes you can run Photoshop on MacBook without any problem.  However, Photoshop is still a bit slow on the Intel Mac (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_Intel_transition) because they are not Universal Binary (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Binary) yet.  Have a look at the benchmark here: http://www.macworld.com/2006/05/firstlooks/macbookbench/index.php

i am really a PC person. I guess Photoshop is a PC app. What I really meant to ask is the macbook will handle these type {photo, movie ect] of applications. I know it is not good for games.
Thanks

Yes in fact Mac is better on the Graphics / Movies side of things with iMovie, iDVD, iPhoto, etc.  However, Adobe Photoshop for the new Mac will run a bit slower until the new version comes out.
