You can use Adobe Camera Raw to tweak, not just RAW file, but Jpegs. It's convenient to shoot Jpegs, and then use Camera Raw to edit them, but does it come at a price quality wise?

Yes. Just look for the differences between raw and jpeg (there is a LOT of info on this). Your editing program only plays a small part in the difference.

You can push a raw file much harder than a normal jpeg. But a correctly exposed jpeg is good enough for small edits. But with the low cost of memory cards and powerful computers their really isn't a reason to not shoot raw anymore.

Thanks, I had a feeling RAW files could handle more strenuous editing. The Jpegs that I have edited in Camera Raw turned out well enough though, and I didn't notice any problems.

Then keep doing that, but beware there might be a point where you want more from your images :)

RAW gives you a lot more options when editing. You can change the exposure in much smaller increments. Lightroom is a very nice and easy way to edit RAW photos. I have used it at my friends and keep meaning to buy it :)
