Hey everyone,

I just installed the newest Ubuntu (10.4 beta?) on my laptop as a 32bit system. Everything seems fine, as in I don't see any missing drivers. I tried 'activating' the restricted video card drivers as well.

I have an ASUS M51Ta-X1 laptop which has an ATI HD 3650 mobility radeon card and a 3200 for power saving. I don't know if this is related, but I am finding that when I work with OpenOffice Documents/Web browsers it tends to be kinda slow (slower than it is on my Windows 7 partition).

It feels like scrolling is not very smooth. Also moving windows around is a little laggy, like in Windows as I am dragging a window it feels like I can move around very smoothly without any choppiness/lag, but in Ubuntu it feels a little 'jumpy'.

Any ideas?
