I would not give up on that yet. I would select my model on a sample
of your data (I would sample higher level units, rather than
individual observations), and than try to run the chosen model on your
entire data, e.g. by starting it on Friday and letting it run over the
weekend, or find a colleague who is away for a couple of days and ask
that colleague if you can use his/her computer.

Hope this helps,
