I found the Zenbook for $600 , I really don't want to go back to Windows but I'm hoping Windows 10 is an improvement over 7 - I never tried 8 and never will.
Or should I save some money and get a Macbook air 13 inch?
There's also a third option which is a Dell inspiring i7559 which has a 6th generation quad core Intel cpu with 6MB cache, 8GB RAM and 256gb ssd, which should be blazingly a fast machine suitable for GameSalad Photoshop and other cpu intensive apps.
The Dell sells for $750

I'm currently using an entry level Mac mini
Your thought??

    What platform do you want to develop for the most. iOS or Android? I develop for iOS mostly. As a result I use a Mac Book Pro.

    With a mac you can run both OSX and windows using bootcamp. This allows you to publish to any platform without using mac in the cloud. But there again it's what you can afford. Have you considered a mac mini?

    I want something portable, I prefer working at a café than sitting at home. I already have a Mac mini
