    Hey,

    Some videos in 720p run laggy on my late '09 MacBook white (9400), in my eyes that seems... pathetic? Videos such as this, is the graphics card really that S***?

    I'm beginning to want a PC... :rolleyes:

    thanks anyways

    It plays fine on my 2007 iMac with a C2D 2GHz CPU and an ATI GPU.
    As this is Flash related, have you updated your Flash version and tried again?


    Also have a look at Activity Monitor ( Applications / Utilities / ) and select All Processes and sort by CPU to see what the culprit may be.

    Only parts of it plays laggy, i'm just downloading the latest flash player and i checked the activity monitor and i don't see anything that should affect it.

    On my MacBook they're fine. Maybe it's something to do with your version of Flash player.

    You either have a very crappy ISP, or something in your MB is failing on you like the video card or something. I have the exact same model MB as you late 09 C2D 2.26GHz, 2 GB's ram and 720p HD video runs smooth as it should run on $1000 machine. Hope you got Apple Care.

    Go to www.speedtest.net to test you download and upload speed. Make sure no other applications, that need an internet connection, are running.
