Hello, I am running a dell inspiron 1521 with vista and amd turion 64 processor. The netflix playback is very choppy and slow. I reinstalled my os and the playback improved, but went back to being slow after all the windows updates had been installed. My wife's laptop (a compaq) is running vista and does not have this problem with netflix, so I know my internet service works fine with netflix.
