Hi all, I'm new to Mac and never used it in past. I've more than 10 years of development experience on Microsoft/Sybase platform and want to get my hands dirty with iPhone/iPotTouch app development. I dont want to invest too much into it but it seems to build iPhone App you must have Mac machine. So I want to know if Mac mini is a good thing to look into for this kind of thing or I should opt for Macbook or iMac ? I can buy mac mini from Microcenter for like $400 or entry level Macbook for like $800. Do anyone know of a good place to look for iPhone application development requirements ?

Thanks in advance.

Any Intel Mac is more than sufficient for development purposes.

definitely any Intel Mac will do.

And, as of the latest update, the mini is again the best bang-for-your-buck Mac available.

Yep, it went from a big rip-off (for the cost) to a pretty good deal.

OKAY here is the deal, I ordered wireless Apple keyboard from ebay and received it today. I'm gonna get my mini on next Thrusday.
The box in which keyboard came there is no software disc. I want to know if I'll need a software to install my wireless keyboard. Also I want to know if there is a way to download drivers for wireless keyboard in case I cannot get disc from seller. If anyone could please post URL for the software that comes with keyboard that would be great. It is a new aluminum bluettoth keyboard.
