Having annoying lag problems while playing games.

I've been having very annoying lag issues for a couple months now. Anytime I am playing a game and something taxing "loads" whether it be casting a large AoE spell in Diablo 2 or loading a new menu after clicking a structure in Starcraft 2, my game freezes for a couple seconds (usually no longer than 3 secs). I'm very confused as my computer should have NO problem playing games as old as Diablo 2... I have an ancient desktop that can play D2 without a hiccup so why is it that my barely 1 year old laptop cannot? I haven't noticed this problem during normal computer usage, like surfing the net or watching videos. I'm using an Acer Aspire 7745g. Here's a link to it's specs Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh yeah and just wanted to add that this problem persists regardless of graphical settings. D2 will run just as choppy on it's lowest settings as it's highest... uhhg what a bother.
