Development laptop for working with magento

Hi,

I hope someone is able to help regarding what would be required for doing website development with magento. I have a developer asking for a mac that is coming in very expensive. Can a PC not be used?

Regards,

Ross

Magento uses PHP, Zend, MySQL - ergo you can use it on any pc.

Any decent spec of laptop / desktop would do the trick. If your developer is asking for a Mac, it's probably because he wants one, not because he needs one.

As Gary says, you can do magento development on any system that can run a [WML]AMP stack - basically, webserver software :)

All the tools you need are free and can be downloaded from various sites.

An inexpensive Linux laptop would also do the trick also.
