    Swift is a programming language created by Apple for people to use to develop Apple product apps. Swift Playground is an app Apple created to help developers especially newer ones and the young learn Swift.

    pkcable's answer is correct. Besides teh language, Playgrounds allows you to explore a variety of Swift APIs. The Keynote demo shows the use of the gyroscope API, and the demo from the WWDC 2016 session #408 shows more.

    Swift is the programming language of the future, but it's good to know a few other languages like Objective C or more preferable C++ when developing for iOS or the sort.

    I like how efficient macs are as my MBA could handle games better than an i7 laptop, but more there's more software support for Windows and a wider variety of devices to buy. Not to mention that you can build your own.
