Our average lifespan for a Macbook Pro is about 1.5 years. Which is good for a developers machine, but not fantastic. We're forced into it as all of our developers touch iOS at some point.
Do you and your developers a favor and wipe that sh*t they call Windows and OSX and put a real OS on.
Ubuntu LTS is my preference and the biggest community backing...but I wouldn't fault you for a different flavor.
If you are forced into objective-c dev, then dual boot those biatches.
