Xamarin on VS 2013

I need to create an IOS phone app using VS 2013 professional. What are the hardware/software I will need? Is this list correct or what is it missing? - Apple® iMac 8GB Memory & 1TB Hard Drive with OS x mountain lion ~$1150. - Windows 8.1 pro running as a virtual machine on Mac ~ $200 - Visual Studio Professional 2013 with 1 year MSDN subscription ~ $1200.

Does visual studio 2013 Professional come with Xamarin? or should I get the Xamarin Business 1 year subscription also? ~ $999/year

thanks in advance

    I can tell you that Visual Studio doesn't come with Xamarin. You have to purchase it separately. And you should get Xamarin Business at least.

    Note: If you are an MSDN subscriber then it is 30% off for Xamarin.

    Note2: You can build apps using Xamarin IDE that comes with Xamarin, you can even go with Xamarin Indie in that case.
