    Hi All,

    Has anyone tried to run the SDK on the MacBook Air with Xcode? - and if so how does it cope?

    I'm undecided as to whether I should get a MBP (for the power) , however the MacBook Air has its portability features

    Running it with no problem at all on my 1.8SSD. The MBA has loads of power (it is a dual core machine, after all) - I run VMWare, Photoshop CS3, Aperture, Eclipse, JBuilder and XCode and it doesn't struggle with any of them

    Same here, except on the 1.6 HDD. Also no problems. Many folks talk about how 'under powered' the MBA is, but it's really not - you can do just about all your everyday tasks on one other than intense graphics work.

    iPhone Emulator and Multitouch

    I was wondering if when you are using the iPhone SDK and you begin to run tests with the iPhone Emulator can you use the Multitouch capabilities available in the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro touchpads to test touch features you build into you iPhone app?
