Mobile development, best computer configuration?

Postby mikael_w » Wed Mar 09, 2011 12:58 pm

Hi,

For the last 4 weeks, I have been trying to get into mobile development. Done a couple of tutorials, read some books, developed a couple of dummy Android apps.

The thing is my computer is a 5 years old laptop, it is slow and time has come to replace it and I’m looking at different offers online.

Have you got any recommendations? Is there any must-have that should make my developer life easier in the future? Is there anything specific that may be useful at a more advanced stage of development that I just can’t think of right now on the hardware side?

(I mean apart from good proc, lots of RAM, many USB ports...)

One thing I can think of is to have three OS on the same workstation: Windows, Unix and MacOS (so far I focused on android/java/eclipse but am interested in Iphone/objC/xcode as well) but that’s more on the software side.

Anyway, would be grateful for any recommendations.

Thanks in advance!

Mikael

PS: I’m quite free on the budget side of things

Hi mikael_w,
It is good to hear that you are going to mobile programming. So for Android development the computer configuration should be good. I think processor and RAM should be in more concern regarding this.
For example, mine is 4 GB RAM, core i3 processor and working smooth for development.

Happy shopping :)

Thanks,
mitu
Android is awesome!
