Android Studio Performance
Hello Treehouse :-)
So I've been getting to know Android studio in the last few days and I have found it to be quite slow, particularly when trying to use the emulator.
For a basic idea of my PC specs I have 500gb Lenovo laptop with 12GB RAM and I7 intell processor. A quick search on Stack overflow tells me it might be due to the fact that I opted to follow the exact version of AS used in the course as Ben suggested. Is performance likely to speed up once I update? :)

I don't think upgrading is going to make much difference. I have the latest version and run it on an iMac that is about 1.5 years old. I always thought it was just my computer as it only has 8Gb of RAM, but if it's slow on yours too...
I recently switched back to work on some iOS Development, and if you think Android Studio is bad... you should see Xcode! It's driving me nuts how slow that is. Most times I have to launch the emulator wait a few minutes, then close the emulator and relaunch. Among other things... Xcode alone may drive me back to Android Development. Lol
Sorry I couldn't provide a 'brighter' insight. :)
