    I want to develop an app using the iphone sdk.
    I am windows user and am planning to migrate to Mac for the same.
    What would be the minimum system requirements that I shoould be looking for?
    Would 512 MB ram suffice? and what should be the processor speed?

    Any current production Mac would be adequate. If you're looking at buying a used machine then Apple stipulates that the SDK requires an Intel machine.

    Any Intel Mac running Leopard will meet the requirements. So even if you get a used one, you'll be ok, you might have to upgrade the OS though.

    Or you can just read the system requirements yourself on the iPhone developer page ;)
