    I have this strange problem. Yes I know I'm using beta software but still... I have one MBP and Mac Pro. MBP crashes often when I'm using playground (it also seems to use a lot of CPU resources) while Mac Pro seems to have no trouble and hasn't crashed.

    What could I look into?

    P.S. it's my first time using Xcode but I've dabbled with UI builder in Xcode 5. I also don't use any 3rd party plugins.

    It's been my experience that XCode 6 is not very stable. Too early in Beta at the moment. I had it crash at least 5 times when creating a simple Swift Cocoa App.

    The first time with Xcode and you jump right in a developer preview? Why? It was to be expected to be full of bugs.

    Your mac pro is probably more stable since a different platform at base value. A full tower (or now cylinder I guess) is not the same as a laptop hardware wise. Put another way some beta sins may be forgiven for the mac pro since the mac pro hardware wise is more robust internally.

    I know some like to think of laptops as equals to towers(cyclinders)...but they aren't. Not a bad thing, I love my mbp. But I know its not a full tower(cylinder).

    But I am assuming the rest is consistent between the 2 by and large. Like software installed and what may be running in background.

    Because I have understood the basics of programming only recently, I learned a bit of Python and Swift does seem to be a bit similar, it's not so intimidating anymore :)

    But yeah, I'll wait for more stable version.

    Actually both computers are 2009 models, mine Mac Pro is base quad core model but yeah, they run the same OS version and same software more or less... but it's true that on my MBP I have bunch of developer tools installed (homebrew, macports, etc).
