    Hi, I am new to mobile software development. What is the best hardware and software configuration to use? My current desktop machine doesn't have enough RAM to download the JAVA ME SDK (has 504 Mb needs at least 1 Gb). So either I have to upgrade my current machine or get another machine. If I get another machine what should I get? I am eyeing an HP Pavilion laptop. What are experienced mobile developer's using? Thanks for your help.

    hey Steve - welcome to Developer Fusion. If your current machine has 504MB of RAM I'm guessing it's quite old - so you'd be much better off buying another machine.

    What kind of budget do you have for a new machine? You'll generally get a better spec on a desktop, but obviously depends if you actually need a laptop or not! :)

    Hi James, thanks for responding. I have money to invest in a worthwhile machine. I don't really need a laptop. . . I just thought it would be more convenient because it's portable. What workstation do you use?
