CS5 - worth it?

just wondering if anyone has discovered any real world features that make CS5 worth the price of upgrading...

i have no interest in using illustrator as a raster paint tool or doing animating in photoshop...

reason i ask is that i use the master collection. and upgrading is like $900

If you have an Intel Mac and if you need speed YES. Otherwise you can skip till CS6.

My old guideline was skip every other upgrade from Adobe - so you could pick odd or even numbers to remember when to upgrade. But my new motto is even easier... Screw Adobe.

Hope that helps.
