I’ve seen a lot of developers share their workspaces and their dev setup. They’re usually really nice and include their offices as well as their computers.
Most of my development life has been spent on Windows and I’ve always used as much horsepower as I could get. When I started doing iOS development I didn’t have a computer, but my wife did. She has a white 13-inch MacBook. When I ordered if for her I upgraded it to 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive and it’s proven to be plenty good enough to develop iOS applications. She uses it during the day, I get it at night and on the weekends. Not a bad deal, and we’ve only managed to consume 100GB of the 320GB drive.
So, yes, that’s right. I actually use my wife’s MacBook to develop iOS applications, and I hope to use it soon to develop a new Mac Application.
One of these days I hope to actually buy a 15-inch MacBook Pro of my own. Until then, this’ll do just fine.
