    Hello people,

    I have a simple question. I developed for a while in my company's office on our iMacs (not during work, believe me - everyday I asked permission to stay last in the office to use a bit the iMac) a couple of applications for the iPhone. They are still in testing stage, but I would like to expand on them, test them, and then release them in the App Store.

    Anyhow, I was fired a week ago because our company went bankrupt, so I will need to rely on my own to keep on doing this, and who knows, if I keep working I might do something good. An ex co-worker offered me to exchange his MacBook White (release October 2008, without the nVidia graphic chip, with 2GB of RAM) with a Dell I bought about 1 year ago and with similar specs, because he cannot get used to using Macs.

    I wanted to know if a simple MacBook White (before the nVidia graphic chip refresh), can be used for development of iPhone apps that require 3D graphics.

    Of course, if my Apps start selling a bit, I will upgrade in the future.

    Thanks!

    Sure can. They are plenty powerful enough.

    Hey, thanks for the replies!

    Yes, I know it is a very good deal! In fact I told him I wanted to give him some money for the difference but he really really does not want to accept it.

    Thanks for the help people ;)

    Why does he not just install Windows on it? In any case bite his hands off if he really wants to!

    Don't know, I told him that as well, but he did not care. I suppose he just wants to help me out a bit.
