My daughter needs to use Adobe Creativity series including photoshop,
illustrator and indesign for college. Will the Apple MacBook (Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz, 2GB RAM, 250GB HDD) be sufficiet to run this software without problems? thanks.

Yes it seems to be OK

Apple's Store has Adobe Creative Suite listed as shown here;

So it seems your daughters Macbook with those specifications should be fine.

If you are still not entirely sure, head over to one of the forums' General Mac Software discussions and see what the experts have to say.

Good luck.

Upgrade RAM advice

if you plan to use it for web and screen purposes is fine but if you want to use it for printing images I would advice to upgrade your RAM memory to at least 4GB

In order to run photoshop for print images and high resolution I would advice you to upgrade your RAM memory to at least 4GB, if you use it for screen and web purposes is fine!
