Hi there,

I am thinking of buying a second-hand computer to essay iOS Development for iPhones/iPads, and my question is wether this computer would be enough, should I simply get installed an OS VirtualMachine and program there, or should I definetely go for a more powerful computer?

I post the details in the attached image.

Many thanks for your insights.

Carlos.

Should be. More memory would make it more responsive if the system can accept more memory.

2GB is definitely on the low side for serious development work. The processor should be good, though.

In case we had the chance to increase the RAM memory up to its top capacity (4Gb), do you think it would still be unsufficient?
Many thanks again.

4 GB should be fine.
