Anyone using CS3 on MacBook Core Duo?

And I stress Core Duo, NOT Core Duo 2.

Looking at possibly picking up a refurbished one but from what I've read, the Duo2 helps with Rosetta. Since CS3 is native, is there really a need to spend more for a mere 10-20% gain?
Mostly Illustrator usage, and the occasional InDesign/Photoshop work.

define swiftly....

say you're working with a 11" x 17" CMYK and you do a paintbucket or a gradient.... how fast is it? is there any spinning beach ball action?

what actions take particularly long?
