i've googled this question A LOT and i get a heap of conflicting answers -- mainly by people who do not in fact own a macbook air and are just giving their opinions.
My problem is i was just given a macbook air 11" 2 gig ram as a gift, i received it just 2 days ago. I would like to use it an an iOS development machine (as i own no other mac) but i need to know if it will be sufficient for iOS dev. Many people who do NOT own MBAs say it is not sufficient based on their experience with MBP 2 gig machines; but the MBA has SSD and so swapping to disk is faster and so im assuming performance would be better than an MBP 2 gig. I have read some answers on google to this effect too.
I would like to know, from someone who actually owns a machine like this whether i should keep this machine for iOS development or return it to the shop within the 10 day return time period.
Another issue is the machine was bought at an overseas port (duty free in australia) and so returning it is not going to be easy or cheap.
Please someone who possesses a machine similar to this can tell me if xcode iOS development is OK or is a slow and frustrating experience?
