Post processing - what do you use?

What do you guys use for processing (digital) photos? Mac, PC, Lightroom, ACR, Photoshop, Gimp, etc?

I do my processing on my Lenovo X61 Tablet, Win7, Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM (3GB effective), with Lightroom 3 beta and Photoshop CS4.

I would LOVE to get a Macbook Pro to do my photo editing with because the screens are SOOOO nice and the processing power with the amount of RAM supported could really render some 12.3MP RAW photos, but $3K is outta my league right now for a new machine. And personally I love having my tablet because I can write directly on the screen when I use the patch tool or any kind of brush.

I use Lightroom to do most of my photo quality edits, and then import the image into Photoshop to do creative stuff as well as patching things up in the photos. I also run my filters (Portraiture and Noise Ninja) through Photoshop rather than as standalones.

GIMP, which is free.

I'm about to upgrade to Photoshop Elements 8 though.

I really don't do a whole lot of PP work as I just don't have the time so I'd never get my money's worth out of anything fancier.

I use Photoshop CS4 on my Macbook Pro with 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo and 4GB RAM. I should look into using Lightroom though. And I'm thinking about giving the new Aperture 3 a try as well.

Photoshop CS3 all the way for me. I generally don't do a whole lot to my photos though unless there's a specific effect I'm looking for.

CS3 FTW! I didn't see that much advancement when I tried out CS4.
