Try doing the MBA build with the laptop suspended in the air on a
couple of pencils.  As the MBA has no fan you might find that
increasing airflow around the laptop makes a big difference.  And
giving the container more RAM/cores will help, obviously, there's no
reason to limit it to half the power.


Thanks for the pointers, let me try it out on my Mac.
Will try to use max cpu cores and RAM to boost the performance a bit.
