Slow on development machine fast on production server—Any solutions?

I am running magento on Windows XP on my development machine. Here is some specs:

Apache 1.3
PHP 5.2.6 with eaccelerator
MySQL 5.0

The machine is a 1 core 2.8 Gigahertz with 2 gigs. It is my personal work computer, so it is just one user. Magento is excruciatingly slow on this machine. It is accessed through localhost. My other sites are all fast on this setup. Is there anything specific about Magento that makes it slow on windows XP or apache 1.3 (my production server uses 2.0).

Yes I have the same observations.

On my Linux production servers Magento loads quite quickly well under 5 seconds for most pages.

On the other hand running local development sites on a laptop with Vista the load time is around 11 seconds but on a desktop XP machine with similar specs to yours the load time is around 30 seconds and that’s using php APC and Apache 2.2.8, why this should be I don’t know.
