It's just a netbook and it will indeed do what you noted. Not that it's bad, it's just a netbook.
Try this. Disable Flash Hardware acceleration (google how to do that) and see if the video clears up but lag and delay on these are legendary.
Why didn't you get a laptop?
Hello. I am a computer novice.
I just purchased a Gateway LT4010u netbook. Seems to be working great. Except for one thing. When I watch movies on netflix, the top 1/4 of the screen intermittently flickers when the camera angle of the movie changes. It's as if it's lagging .5 second or something. This only happens at the top of the screen.
Did I get a bum system?
Is there an issue with the video card?
Is this all I can expect from this computer?
