[SW 2013 SP 4.0] Slow Performance

I have a problem with SolidWorks 2013 SP 4.0 on my mobile MacBook Air 2013. I know that this computer is not the best option to run SoliWorks, but I had no problem with the MacBook Air 2011 so I would like to know if there is something that I can do to improve my working experience when I am not at home.


The MacBook Air 2013 has: Windows 8 Pro,  i7 4650U, 8Gbyte of RAM and a 256SSD PCI-Expess drive (faster than the SSD that I have on my workstation at home).


The problem is the follwing.


I am working with a simple single body file (this happen also with other file) and, whenever I pass with the mouse across the solid that rappresent my object I notice that the computer is no more responsive and that the software starts to "draw" orange lines on the countour of the various functions that correspond to an object.


As you can see in the video the software seem to work well only when you don't go with the mouse on the 3d object. Then you have to wait for all the orange lines to draw before you can start to work again.

Can you please tell me what can I do to improve this behavoir? Maybe there is some "redraw borders" option that I could disable?
