I don't have enough money to go and buy a new Mac Pro, so I'm aiming to buy a used one; namely a 15.4" MacBook Pro Intel c2d 2.4GHz with 4 GB of RAM. It has the latest Lion on it and I'm wondering how Xcode 4.5.1 would perform on this system?

That being said, the more complex a project, the more time it's going to take... on any system.
