Eric, although I use Windows, it would still apply to you. Let me just 
add one more voice to those who recommended you use LightRoom. It is 
extremely well done piece of software. Not without quirks, but it is 
really convenient.

I bought mine when it first came out, upgraded from 1.x to 2.x and 
recently to 3.0. Happy ever since.

I don't do much of pixel level editing, except, may be, removing of 
sensor dust with heal brush. So LR fits my purpose just like I glove.

You can download it and give it a fair try for free for a month or so as 
far as I understand. And it has both Win and Mac versions so that you 
can probably try it on your MacBook.
