  1. Could be your Java version. do you have 64 bit java? with 32 you'll crash all the time and it will lag horribly if you ARE using 32 bit java. try reinstalling with 64 bit java. or you arent dedicating enough memory to java.

  1. You could try installing Linux. I have never seen Linux run Minecraft poorly.
