    I've been developing iPad games on an old Mac Mini. After a memory upgrade normal development runs well apart from the fact that the iPad simulator runs extremely slowly on the setup. 5-10fps compared to 50-60fps on the device itself.

    Has anybody any experience with running the iPad simulator on an MBA? Is it as fast as the device?
