I have an issue with Xcode 4 really responding very slowly to user interactions, e.g. editing code, scrolling areas etc. This particularly happens with larger scale projects with many controllers/view files etc.

I completely wiped the hard disk and re-installed Snow Leopard and Xcode the other week but steadily it ground to a frustrating response time again (over a number of days) disrupting workflow considerably.

I have also on occasion removed the project's "derived data" via the Organiser -> Projects and this has had little effect.

I'm wondering if there is anything I can do to improve performance other than get a higher specced machine in the first instance.

In case we need to upgrade I'd also like to know if people are experiencing this poor performance from Xcode 4 on well specced machines (which would make our hardware upgrade rather pointless as it's only Xcode that has any performance issue on the MacBook).

If anybody has any suggestions or recommendations or could even let us know how improved hardware effects Xcode's performance on larger project trees then that would be extremely helpful and also a valuable resource for other devs in a similar position.
