I think you could do that work all pretty well on a MacBook air.
Great battery life and super light!

Go for Mac Mini, reliable easy to operate Mac system. I have one and use it for exactly what you do.

Mac Mini. You can go for a high configuration, and a good monitor.
A wireless keyboard/mouse will cost you $20. This will be cost effective and give you high performance

Additionally, you can run Game development, Photoshop, and do other important personal stuff very easily.

I do all of that except for game development on my Macbook Air with no problems.

Given your stated usages, I'd suggest a 15" MBP with Retina display, with the optional 1TB SSD.

I bought a Macbook Air last year. It helped me a lot. Programming and playing games is so agreeable.

My wife is a physicist and her systems are all Mac's - a Mac Pro for work-type stuff, and iBook for gaming, internet, and such. Assuming you have a good monitor, keyboard, and mouse, then a mini is a good deal for the price.

the MacBook air ok is ok, upgrade the ram though. I have heard about something like external graphics.
look up the razoer blade stealth pc. it uses thunderbolt to connect to a external graphics card. who knows, this may work with a mac.
