I recerntly switch from my laggy windows laptop to an Macbook Air13. It's amazing and so much bettre as a devolper. I would defently recomend buying a Macbook!

Well, it depends what you will be using it for. Will you be developing apps for apple, or using text editors to create websites?

Probably want to get a mac then

Then you have to buy a Mac. You can only produce apps with Xcode which is available only from the Mac AppStore.
