I just recently came across Scott Byer's blog.
He explains the reasons Photoshop will be delayed releasing universal binaries version of Photoshop (for the intel mac) until 2007 when Photoshop CS3 is released. This fact has concerned a lot of people judging by all of the responses that the blog received. Some go so far to say that they will not upgrade to an intel Mac until photoshop CS3 (with universal binary) is released.
No one mentioned that Adobe Lightroom (currently in Beta) now is Universal. As a photographer, Adobe Lightroom may be the Saviour for the intel Macs before 2007. Photographers may be able to function quite well with a Macbook Pro and Adobe Lightroom once it has been released.
Until I post again, have fun, remember not to take life too seriously and have a great week,
