Visual Studio Xamarin Performance Issues

I have below issues on Visual Studio - Xamarin and I almost tried all possible solutions avilable on internet to fix it.

Xamarin is too slow on my machinhe, Its stops responding expecially while loading Designer Agenet page while I work with android and Storyboard page while I work with iOS. Below is my Machine Hardware Configuration. I am using on a HP Notebook. Processor - Intel (R) Core (TM) i5 -6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz 2.40 GHz RAM - 8GB 64 bit Operating System - Windows 10
Connection established between my Notebook and MacBook disconnects often. Everytime it happens I will have to close Visual Studio and Repoen it. Sometimes It takes forever to connect and I should even restart my machine.
Below are the Software Versions Installed.

Visual Studio 2015 Version 14.0.25420.1 Xamarin For VS Version Xamarin Profiler Version

Could someone also suggest about detailed hardware requirements for working on VS with Xamarin.

    Hi @RaghavendraM,

    Hi It felt the same way to me on almost same setup- I ditched everything on that laptop, formatted and now only Xam is sitting on it, works like charm (though now I use it for testing my builds etc). Also I got my new Dell for reasonably high price, however it worth all pennies spent.

    Get yourself little pampered.

    Yeah it can be. may be or not be. Use Tom's Hardware for more hardware issues, or rely on the stuff you have.
    I spent few hard-earned bucks for the performance, which I am getting now, for your core i5 can't really comment, may be its worn out, or even if it is new, must be lagging due to other processes, so Ideally dump everything off from it and let the Xamarin only sit (unless it is your office laptop, corporate glitch which I hate most, they have so much pre-installed and useless when developing).

    Hope it helps.
