xCode on Mac netbook?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,


I want to know if any one successfully installed and used xcode on a netbook. I used it before on a virtualized OS x for a couple of days.


Is it usable? not just for testing but for actual development?

The downsides are the same as with anything else running on a netbook; tiny display, slow CPU, not enough RAM.

If it's compatible and OS X runs well on it, xcode itself will run well on it.

It's up to you to decide if you can work on your projects in a cramped space like that.

Make sure you select a netbook with full QE/CI support, and you're good to go. Have in mind the issues raised by Gringo Vermelho, though.


Atom processors should have a different name that matches properly its performance: maybe Coal, or Vapor, or even AnimalTraction CPUs. Well...
