I want to know if anyone can say definitively whether or not a MacBook Air 2013 ed. with standard i5 1.3GHz Haswell CPU would be powerful enough to run XCode and the iOS simulator smoothly. For those concerned and thoughtful citizens you can ignore screen size as I will be using a second monitor of resolution 2560x1440. I guessed development and emulator size could be an issue using the attached screen alone. If there are other limitations to consider with an Air for the purpose of development please feel free to state them here too. Thanks to anyone that replies!
