I have a Windows 7 box where I do development work on before pushing up to a central dev server. The performance on my local machine is holding me back. I like to deploy regularly to check changes however the application refresh takes an age.
I run SQL Server & SharePoint all off the same box. I currently do not virtualizes. My machine spec is as follows:

- 14GB RAM
- 500GB Hard Drive (non SSD)
