Alabalcho, Thank you for the reply.

But I m confused with what you have told here. As I know I can develop android application by using Mac only. Currently I use a iMac with intel core i5 2.9 GHz and 8GB ram. It works fine when running Android emulators but it's not mine. So I want to buy a mac. I plan to go for Mac mini with above spec. What I want to know is if I use mac mini with above spec to develop android applications will there be performace issues when running emulators. Because I have to face emulator starting problem when I using my core i3 2.1 GHz laptop with 4GB memory. It usually take more than 5 min to start emulator with Android 5.0 Os.

Thanks
