Computer hardware requirement for processing raw image from A7R4

Dear all,

I just switch to A7R4 from Nikon D7000 thanks to the B&H education discount on Black Friday. I did some test shots today and found the IQ is a huge leap. I'm quit happy about this new high-end camera! However, I just realized my computer is too slow to process the 120+MB raw image from A7R4. All I was trying to do is using the imaging edge software to view and edit some test shots, e.g. adjust the exposure and saturation a little bit. It took about 20+seconds every time when I increase one step of exposure. I'm using a Macbook Pro 2016 version with 8GB memory. It's almost impossible to do any process in the current situation. I had been aware the computer could be an issue before I bought this camera, I just didn't realize how slow it can be. T.T

I'm wondering what kind of computer do you use? Any suggestions for computer hardware and possible workflow? Thank you very much!
