    Does the 3.0 developer have to develop with Mac or can you develop with Windows and if so, does apple give you the software for either system if your in the program?

    No, the iPhone SDK is only on Mac OSX

    If you want a cheap computer to do iPhone development on, get a Mac mini. If you have to have a laptop, there are a few refurbished ones on apple.com for $850.

    or you could do the intelligent thing (from a price standpoint) and emulate OSX on Windows

    mac mini is good coz if u have a windows desktop computer then usually ur hardware like monitor, mouse, keyboard etc all work with it.

    if u want a laptop then buy the white macbook. It will do the job fine if u r wanting to keep costs down. Otherwise get aluminum
