    hrithik123, you're gonna need to learn to be a lot more case-sensitive when you actually start coding in Objective-C. :)

    Maybe a little bit more like a MacBook Shuffle internally (laptop HD).

    There is no iMac Shuffle, they're just playing with you.

    You can use an iMac or a Mac Mini for iPhone development. The iMac is more powerful as has a built-in monitor, the Mac Mini is smaller and doesn't come with a monitor. If you already have a monitor and don't want to spend a lot of money on a Mac, the Mac Mini will be fine.

    I use a Mac Mini for all my iPhone development and it works fine.

    Yes. It's perfectly adequate to use to develop iPhone applications on.

    The Mac Mini comes without a screen or keyboard - you provide your own.

    The iMac comes with both a display and keyboard and is ready to use out of the box.

    Yes. Assuming the keyboard is a USB one. And you have a mouse.

    In all seriousness, the mini is a beast. Pop in 4 gigs of ram and an SSD (the upgrade takes about 20 mins to do) and that thing will scream doing Adobe or programming. I seriously would get the base mini model and upgrade it like that. Buy a refurb if you can. Or use an edu discount.

    I loved mine. I will get another after they refresh it in a few months. But dude its the best desktop I have had. I have been using computers for over a decade and that thing was the coolest! You can use any external display and it even comes with a mini to dvi adaptor to plug into your monitor. I have a 1080p monitor with vga, hdmi, dvi, and the Mini powered the 23" display with style.

    Plus it has 2 display ports so you can buy another adaptor and power a 30" display with higher resolutions. 1080p is fine for me though. The Mac Mini is ALL about functionality with style. I had so many compliments with it like, "Where is your computer?" "Oh... wow, thats it?????!" Yah then they see it load Photoshop and yep.

    If you get a Mini, do yourself a favor and get an Intel SSD 80 gig gen2 drive. Make your stock drive into an external storage/time machine backup, and you will have a great setup. That is all I have to say about that. Momma always said life is like a box of Minis.
