I don't want to do anything illegal, or frowned upon, like hackintoshing, I just want to be able to look at sample xcode projects on my Windows PC. My Macbook is too slow to switch between xCode projects or even to keep Safari and xCode running at the same time.
So, is there some soft of xcode viewer software for PC?

XCode project files just tie a bunch of files together and define common settings for them. If you download a sample XCode project, all the code is there in subfolders to be read with Notepad or the like. Smile

Yeah, I know, but I was hoping for a more streamlined solution that would allow me to jump from file to file and also see the nibs.

Your MacBook is absolutely hands down no doubt about it capable of doing this. Either intensive stuff is running in the background eating all of the CPU, or you're out of memory and paging to disk somehow. (Maybe Safari has leaked it all?)

Any MacBook is a heck of a lot faster than a lot of the PPC machines we used just a few years ago, and everyone got along on those just fine.

(I realize this is a semi-stupid reply, but I just don't see how a MacBook can be "too slow" to run Safari and Xcode. I just did it for a week myself recently with 5-6 projects open at the same time, a dozen tabs in Safari, and several other apps, not to mention the ones I was developing.)

I'm with FreakSoftware on this - are you definitely on a MacBook and not an older iBook or something like that?

Look in Activity Monitor when it's really really slow and see how your resources are being used. Without question, I'd stick the maximum in the MacBook. I was using 2 GB all that week I mentioned and was running low pretty often, so it does slow down, but it's all still very usable.

wow that is an amazing price!

I still dunno...see, the thing is the screen backlight inverter on this Macbook is screwy, causing sometimes, when on battery power, the screen to flicker. I am not sure I want to invest money in this computer at this point in time.
