Is a MacBook Pro necessary to build a simple app?

I would like to build some simple IPhone, IPad and Apple Watch apps and don’t know where to start. I don’t have a very large budget for a MacBook which I think I need to build the app. What would be the suggested starting point for a newbie Apple app developer.

Favor from:

You need a Mac to build the App using xCode, it does not have to be a Macbook.


It can be basic Mac Mini if you wanted.

I'd start here:
