    MAC Mini is great for this.

    I got my MAC Mini just for making iphone apps. It was my first mac, now i'm using it as my main computer. The MAC Mini performs rather well. I got the low end $550 model and upgraded ram to 2 gigs myself.

    Not so clear. So you start with buy a Mac 550. And upgrade the ram. Develop apps.

    And now you have another main computer also Mac . For doing other thing. It is ?

    Do you think for me it is better to buy 2nd hand Mac for start ?

    I just bought a used MacBook 2.4GHz 160GB hard drive 2GB memory with 10.6.4 Snow Leopard. I downloaded the IDk and have built some sample and it appears to work great. (I'm also new to Macs.)

    I got a mac mini for $550.

    used it to develop apps and its been great.
    I have come to like the mac mini so much that I now use it as my main computer for doing everything and just recently upgraded it from 1gig of ram to two since you can never have to much ram.

    I have retired my windows PC to act as a web server.


    What background in programming do you have? Have you ever done any C++, Objective C, or PHP? If so you should be able to pick it up rather quickly.

    Mac mini = Mac mini desktop computer

    Mac book = Mac note book

    My MacBook was used and cost me $650, but I think I got a good deal on it. (It's 2.4Ghz, 2 Meg RAM, 160GB hard drive, and included a Bluetooth Mighty Mouse.) I think it's perfect for iPad development.

    I am a Flash/AS3 Developer by profression and have a few years C/C++ job experience as well. I'm not expecting much difficulty learning Objectivd-C.
