My work involves running a specialized Web application. I'm using Google Chrome on a Macbook Air laptop with 8 GB of RAM. With gmail open in one tab and this app open in another Chrome window, my Web app feels sluggish (e.g. the mouse is slow to move on the screen, clicking a link takes seconds to open, etc.). How do I optimize my system to run the Chrome tab that's running this web app? I'm thnking along the lines of:
- Dedicating one CPU core to this Chrome tab.
- Allocating 2GB of physical RAM to this tab.
- I'm willing to buy a new Macbook Pro with 32GB of RAM to improve the performance of this web app.
