    Any of them should work. I would say that 8GB of ram is the least to be truly comfortable. Regardless of what you purchase, it helps to have a display of reasonable quality. It makes text much easier on the eyes, and it can be easier to judge any design work if you do it yourself.

    I have a old monitor, so following your advice, I can buy a Macbook Pro with Retina or iMac. OK, thanks for your advice.

    You could also ask in one of the programming sections of the forum. There are many people who use Macs for coding on a daily basis, so you're likely to get a more diverse set of responses. I would also search the old threads, because this has been asked before.
