Hi,
I'm using PC, and I'm new to Mac, and I want to get Mac OS so I can develop some iOS applications, I think that Mac Mini is good for my needs:
2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
4GB 1066MHz DDR3
320GB Serial ATA Drive

What do you say?
Is Mac Mini good for iOS applications developing?
Can I install Windows 7 on it?

Thanks

Absolutely... I'm a developer and while I have a powerful iMac, some of the guys coding our game use Mac Mini's ... and older ones at that. You can happily run Xcode etc with it

Don't know if you can install Windows on it , but why bother if you have a Windows PC already.

You will be able to install windows onto it, so long as it is running 10.5 you can use boot camp, or you can run a virtualisation software on it and do it that way.

Is there an obvious difference between Intel Core 2 duo 2.4GHz and 2.6GHz?
The price difference is $150.

To be honest not really no, maybe a $50 difference but not a $150 difference.
