    Why difference in full screen Flash (hulu) Thinkpad vs. Dell Laptop

    I have a Thinkpad T30 laptop and a Dell Latitutde D400 latop. Full video, on Hulu, for example, is choppy and close to unwatchable; full video is fine on the D400. What would account for the difference? Is there anything I can adjust. Details for both machines are below. Both are running Flash 10. Both are running Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.

    Thinkpad T30

    CPU: 2.2 GHz (R processor), 512 kb cache
    Memory: 512 MB

    Dell D400

    CPU: 1.3 GHz (M processor), 1024 kb cache
    Memory: 256 MB

    To answer my own question: The Thinkpad was running Amarok, while the Dell was not ... Amarok apparently can be a memory hog. I shut it down, along with gaim and klipper ... and the full screen was fine. A little jagged every five minutes or so, but acceptable.
