Hi Folks,

I want to buy a new laptop windows 7 a core i7 quade core for ROR development, but I'm wondering if the 64bits is not incompatible with ROR ?? Will I have trouble with that ?

I once tried it. Ruby 32 bit installer does work on 64bit Windows 7. (it was core i5 processor if you wonder).

If you are buying a laptop specifically for RoR development, I highly recommend getting a Mac. 90+% of Ruby developers I know are on Mac because it's easier.

Most people will say you don't need IDE.
But, editing multiple files(routes.db,controller,etc) requires something good.
Besides, it helps with syntax errors.
I agree. Here's the link:
