Webstorm itself is very slow.
I never saw any problems with TS using VScode. Everything works very very fast, including TS.

Before giving any recommendations about what TS team must do, throw away your laptop out of the window and buy a good PC. The second option, get rid of the webstorm.

I did the exact things that have been described above and I am happy.

Don't forget that people need high-performance PCs not only for gaming, but also for working with modern technologies.

Thanks for your suggestions! But I'd better keep that MacBook Pro with me 😀 In VS Code the effect is less noticeable, yes, but only to some degree. With enough memory tsserver consumes much more CPU than the editor. Yet, tsserver performance is the same regardless of the editor.

On my PC TS works very fast in any environment.

Sure, having a big and powerful computer is better than having a small and limited laptop. Personally I don't like laptop keyboards (and especially Apple touchbar), I don't like small screens, I don't like fan noise, I don't like carrying it with me. But unfortunately I have to. Using laptop is always a compromise. It's not the best equipment I can imagine, it's just the most adequate for me.
