I’m : a web and mobile developer based in the Manning Valley, Australia.

MacMini or iBook

I want to get a Mac but am not sure whether to get a Apple MacMini or an iBook. Both machines would more than likely be on the low end of the spec sheet ... but do I go for a MacMini just to get started or go straight ahead for the iBook? Unfortunately there is no way I could afford a Powerbook as they are just way too expensive.

All I need it for is development (PHP, HTML and perhaps some Java or C), email, web, etc... Gaming is not too much of an issue as we've got an XBox for such things.

So what to do?
