Hey everyone, I provide PC services for a number of non-profit charities.  However, we don't normally deal in MACs.  That being said, we have a charity client who is being given grant money to purcahse MACs for an after school program that will teach them photoshop and various other art programs.  The teacher is paid for by the grant as well.

They are going to be using Photoshop CS3 or CS4 and perhaps some other adobe products.  That being said, we don't normally deal in MACs.  However, given the charity nature of the client I'd love to help.  Can you Mac Guru's help recommend a good MAC model for them?  I can build and quote PC's in my sleep, but I seldom venture into the Mac World.

It's going to be as follows:

Used in a lab setting, probably about 10 of them total.  There is already a 16 port switch in the room to give them internet access.  They need to run various Adobe art apps.  What's a good model to look at for them in their grant money?

Thanks in advance for your help and please forgive my MAC ignroance!  We are only using them because the grant requires it!

I just want to make sure they get good models that can run the art class.  It's for a good cause!
