    Any Mac will be fine. You will need Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) to use the latest verison of XCode and the iOS 5 SDK. This is included with all new Macs. XCode uses a single window so the larger the screen the better but you can switch individual panes on/off as required. A 13 screen would be tight but usable. Was this answer helpful?
