Best iMac for mobile app development

There are obvious restrictions for developing iOS apps as far as the hardware is concerned. You need a Mac OS for developing iOS apps. Therefore we decided to find the Best iMac for mobile app development. We are assuming that you will do a bit of designing as well (well what fun it is to design on MAc 🙂 ). When you are developing for Mac OS the developer needs Xcode developer environment, web browser, SQL Database editor, perhaps a separate text editor, design tool and much more open at the same time.

Our consideration to decide a good mac machine for the mobile app development environment made us agree on following points:-

  • Good Memory Capacity
  • Decent Power (RAM)
  • Portability
  • Connection ( Printer, Bluetooth, external mouse and other accessories )
  • And of course the Price.

Keeping all these factors in mind ( and keeping the price on the top) we feel a Mac Mini makes absolute sense. Its easy on the pocket and have decent features. The interesting part is that you can attach any screen with it. We prefer Large Screen ( At least we don’t want to work on cramped machine 🙂 ) and have sometimes attached a 32″ TV also at times.
