Sergiy is definitely right in pointing out that Stata's do-file editor is continually becoming more featureful, and if Stata code is the only code you write and the do-file editor is otherwise adequate (except for folding), I would just wait a week and buy Stata 13.  However, if you write code in multiple languages and want to use the same tool to do it, or if you simply want more powerful text-editing features or customizability, then you might consider a stand-alone text editor.

RE TextMate, make sure to download version 2.0 (although this is still referred to as an alpha release, it is more than stable enough for serious work).  The first time you open a do-file (or ado-file), it will automatically download and install the Stata mode, and interaction with Stata is described in the resulting Help menu item.
