I've never used a Mac before, but I love Unix as a dev platform, and I'm hearing really good things about OS X as a Java dev platform.
My question is, is this true ?
If so, I'd like to buy an Apple laptop to use, and I'm looking at buying a 1Ghz G4 iBook with 512Mb memory. Is this sufficient for using IDEA on & running, say, tomcat in debug mode ?
For the same money I can get a mid range PC laptop. Is that a better bet ?
