Need hardware recommendations for developing with Lazarus
« on: November 21, 2017, 03:46:28 pm »
Hi,

I'm developing with Windows 7 and Linux (the latter with a virtual machine).

I also want to test my Lazarus projects with Mac OS X. It would be nice if anyone gave me some hints what Mac machines would be suitable for developing with Lazarus and a Mac. I'm completely new to Mac and have no experience. Some "simple" machine with SSD would be nice.

Thank you!  ;)

IIRC you can run OSX in a VM in VirtualBox.

@Pascal: much less work if the host CPU is Intel. (i was not able to install on AMD)
@stem: you can start VirtualBox headless and connect with remote desktop to the OSX instance.
