I have been using the lightroom classic / photoshop ( photographers package ) on my aging Mac. I can not use the cloud because my internet connection is too weak and expensive to be sending photos to the cloud. That is why I only use Lightroom Classic. My old Mac is dying, so I am replacing it with the Apple Macbook Pro, which Costco will ship next week. Thinking ahead, about loading Classic on the Macbook Pro, I only see Classic listed under "desktop". Classic is not listed under mobil. Does that mean the Macbook Pro will not run Lightroom Classic? Thanks much.
Thank you very much John. I have been confused since classic is listed under desktop, and the laptop is not a desk top. But a laptop is not a phone either, so I did not know where it falls, under desktop, or mobil. But as you pointed out, mobile means phone, and a laptop is a computer. The link you provided assured it will work, because the classic I use, the photographers package, which is a subscription, which gets all the latest updates, so it looks like all is okay.
"Desktop" very definitely means all Macs, whether desktops or portables. We don't call them laptops any more, because they get dangerously hot for laps! And, it is definitely not a mobile device, even though you can carry it! Yes, confusing.
But more importantly, on a new Mac you WILL NEED all new apps. Happily the latest Lightroom Classic and Photoshop are compatible with the Big Sur system you will get on a new Mac. Well, more or less compatible. It will be an M1 computer, and there are still plenty of weird and wonderful issues with these brand new toys...
