    Question Just getting started!!
    I have been wanting to try my hand at making stuff for the iPhone. But I have a few questions.

    I understand I HAVE TO HAVE a mac to program, will a mini mac work or would I need something better?

    What all is needed to program. Software? How Much?

    How hard is it. I have had done some basic programming before. I have never worked with mac before.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    - Albert

    Smile you don't need a mac
    You can dalbootmac and windows using IAtkos v7 and then all you need is the iphone sdk. You should look over objective c before you start abd maybe purchase a book on iphone development, check out this guide to dualbooting on a windows pc

    If you decide to go the mac route, the Mac Mini should be fine. I started with one, but got sick of being tied to my desk, so I switched to a Macbook a few weeks later.

    If you do go with the Mac Mini, I 100% recommend getting 2GB of RAM, 4 if you can afford it.

    Thanks for your help everyone.

    Question - Dual boot: Does it work with AMD or only Intel?

    Mini Mac - Is thise worth getting for video editing (Youtube and such? That is if I put 4GB of ram into it.
