Hello, my laptop has a 2630QM and it should be able to run this seeing as it can go up to 2.9ghz.. Maybe it's something that has to do with this turbo boost stuff... Idk.. But I know the requirements for 1080p movies on itunes.. its only 2.4ghz.. I'm sure i pass that right?

What kind of message, if any, do you get telling you the video can't play?

make sure your laptop is plugged into extrernal power. Often when not plugged in they revert to a low power/low performance scheme.

edit - is your laptop 1080?

I get something like "The 1080p version of "Iron Man 2" is to large to play on this computer" But I've clearly played 1080p movies before, because my TV is 1080p.. Although my computer is 1600X900.. I've still been able to do 1080p movies before and enjoy them.. but iTunes runs them all sluggish!

Don't fret, look at my PC specs, I get the SAME message for all my HD movies. The trick is to click cancel or let the timer run out, will most likely play the movie anyways. See if just cancel or letting the timer run out still lets you watch the movie in HD.

It is iTunes, in my opinion, since it happens to me.

Though my computer doesn't get sluggish playing them.
