I might look for a MAC instead of my usuals PC
but I need
Apache2
PHP5
MySQL
and phpMyAdmin

since I will not know anything about MAC
is this an easy setup?
Is there some pre made pack that will install easy?

MAMP [mamp.info] is definitely an option although I don't personally like needing to have an open application in the dock for my dev sites to be accessible.

Versions of Apache2 and PHP5 are already installed on current shipping Macs, however Apache 1.3.33 and PHP 4.x are enabled by default. Adjusting your configuration to use the newer versions isn't too complex although it does require editing config files.

Or, you could install newer versions of Apache2 and PHP5 using one of the easy installers which are available:

PHP 5 [entropy.ch] from Marc Liyanage
Apache2 [serverlogistics.com] from Server Logistics

MySQL has an easy installer [serverlogistics.com] from Server Logistics or you can install source using the instructions from Apple [developer.apple.com].

Thanks
I think I will try to do that
next move:
spending more than usual on a machine :)

Knowing that I am not the image/site-look developer
and that I do not care about music, video etc..on my work horse

Just need enough speed for my dev and web surfing

which kind of laptop power do I need?

Laptop? A MacBook [apple.com] will do nicely for web development. (Really anything except hardcore gaming.)

in 15" it costs pretty much what I spent on my last inspiron
I am really going to give it a try

Thanks all; the thread could make an easy ref for php dev willing to change from PC to MAC
