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!
PS: I’m quite free on the budget side of things PPS: I'm aware it's not really a programming question but will still be of interest to some programmers here.
