Not sure which distro to go with for my hardware
Hi guys, I'm new to the scene and really anxious to get into the mac world as I'm a developer and want to start learning iPhone development, but I don't want to go out and buy a mac just yet.
I have an two systems I can use to install, the first is an older desktop. I'll list the main specs, but this link has all the info: [H] Enthusiast - Shuttle AN50R
MB: Shuttle AN50R Nforce3
CPU: AMD Athlon 64 3200
RAM: 3gb Kingston
HD: Have 80gb IDE
ATI Radeon X1950 AGP
I also have a newer laptop with the following specs that I currently use Windows 7 Beta on it, but wouldn't mind getting OSX to work on it. Here's its specs.
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7700 2.4ghz
RAM: 3gb DDR2
NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT
Here's a link to its specs: Newegg.com - ASUS G Series G1S-B2 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T7700(2.40GHz) 15.4" Wide SXGA+ 3GB Memory DDR2 667 200GB HDD 7200rpm DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT - Laptops / Notebooks
It really doesn't matter to me which system I install OSX on, I'm ultimately looking for which will be the easiest to install and easiest to maintain with updates. The main point of doing this is to start learning OSX and to be able to use the development tools, d/l and install the iPhone SDK, and use any other related software. Don't need to run games or extreme graphical apps.
What do you guys suggest?
