    iOS Development advice

    I was originally thinking of going for a 256gig model. I am going to use it purely of iOS development work, storing m projects etc., and I also read that Xcode has increased in size to about 10gb now, which is why I was considering 512gigs of storage. I might come across some big projects down the lane which is why I chose that. But I would definitely take your advice into consideration. Thanks alot

    iOS Development advice

    Why do you think that 8gb would hardly last me 5 years? Even if it's for purely development purposes?
  3. Bear with me while navigating through the somewhat unnecessary details that follow but I wanted to get as accurate advice as possible on the topic: MacBook Pro for iOS development. I have been wanting to get into apple's development ecosystem for a while now and thoroughly researched my options, I concluded that getting a MacBook Pro 13.3" with 8gigs of ram and 512gigs of ssd. Following are the issues that I'd be very appreciative for clarification on: 1-During my research, watching youtube reviews, I came across cases of thermal throttling in brand new models both MacBook Pro and the new mac mini. The problem turned out to be dried out thermal paste. Now although reapplying the thermal paste DID solve the issue. However, these are quite expensive tools compared to any windows' machine that I have and I don't want prying it open to be the very first thing, because of the fear of messing it up, and also given especially how hard apple tries to limit a customer's control on their device. So do the refurbished models have thermal paste reapplied as well and has anyone come across a case of thermal throttling on a refurbed MacBook Pro. 2- Is a 13-inch screen enough when working with multiple iphone simulations? 3-Is an 8gb ram enough for iOS dev as well as 512gb ssd to last me with for next 5 years? 4-I am currently in sophomore year and am proficient in C++ and OOP related stuff. That being said, about $1700 is quite a bit of investment and I want to recover it asap. Hence, I'd like to know what is a good estimate of the time of how quickly can one gain a working knowledge of swift and iOS dev because working with a VM Ware installed Mac environment is too difficult for my current laptop to support and isn't as smooth of an experience. 6-Please recommend any good sources to learn iOS dev if you are aware of any. 7- Does portability matter enough over raw performance gain to not get a better spec-ed mac mini over a lower spec-ed MacBook pro? 8-What sleeves or hard cases would you recommend? I apologize if I come across as stupid or ignorant in any of my questions, but please bear in mind that I am an amateur right now, but eager to learn.

      Might be best to post your questions on the Laptop subforum. More people will see it there.

  5. I am looking for a mechanical keyboard for programming and general typing applications. I am confused as to which switch to choose from between Cherry MX Brown or Blue? Would like to get recommendations for keyboards employing either of the switches and be good value for money.
