  • Schae,
    Best option for you would be Macbook Pro 15 inch with Retina Display. Though stock models are more than sufficient for task, you can get it customised for still better performance.
    As Programmer you will enjoy its speed and fact that It can support dual external displays.

  • I have recently started developing Android apps and when I decided to start working with IOS apps I decided I should by a Mac Mini. Although it is not a MacBook, but a Mac Desktop, it is affordable and offers definitely enough power for developing apps. However I do recommend upgrading the initial RAM to 8Gb so it is easier to run programs like Unity alongside XCode. It may be a hassle to get the screen, keyboard, etc. but it is definitely worth the money saved.
