Slowness?

I picked up a 160GB ATV today. When streaming a movie from my laptop to TV it seemed like my laptop ran a bit slower than usual. Is this normal? Something I'm doing wrong?

It's on my wireless G network. I've got the istat pro widget. The RAM looked normal, but I'll have to try it again and check the load to see it's reports.

What 'seemed' slower? If it was internet browsing, the load on your network connection could be make it a bit laggy. It would make sense if tasks requiring hard drive access (pretty much everything) were affected as well.
