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

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 :)

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

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

An inexpensive Linux laptop would also do the trick also.
