Web Development Environment

I dabble in web development - nothing to serious (I've got a couple sites). That said I like to mess around on my localhost before going live.

I only need apache, php, mysql, and phpadmin. That said I know OS X has apache already, and the others can be installed/configured.

My question is however, since I only dabble - I'm thinking it would be best for me to use something like MAMP or XAMPP for the ease of it as it relates to configuration, etc.

Does anyone have any thoughts? I am only serving the website(s) locally on my machine, not even to the rest of the computers in my home.

My machine is a mid-2009 MBP running 10.8


Thanks!
