Shopping questions are off topic here (and on most Stack Exchange sites). If you can come up with a specific set of requirements and a specific hardware feature question, such that your question will still be useful in three years when Apple's changed their entire lineup again, it won't be off topic. (Example: I want to do X. Would having better speakers or a camera be more helpful for that?) –  CajunLuke Sep 20 '12 at 15:19
I am actually asking for the set of features that i should count in when buying one. –  Lithu T.V Sep 20 '12 at 15:27
What do you mean by "count in"? If you mean "count on", if Apple advertises them, they have to work or you can return the laptop. If you mean "what features I should consider important", that varies widely based on what you intend to do with the laptop. –  CajunLuke Sep 20 '12 at 16:34

1 Answer 1

Based on the information you've provided so far, all of Apple's laptops will suffice. I know people who do iOS programming on 11" MacBook Airs; I also know people who swear by two iMacs and a Mac Pro for heavy lifting.

You need to give us more information to get a better answer.
