I got the HP Pavilion dv7-2185DX and judging by the specs:

Processor- 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Core Q9000
Memory- 6GB, 800MHz DDR2
Hard drive- 500GB 7,200rpm
Chipset Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset
Graphics- 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650
Operating system- Windows Vista Premium (64-bit)

you would expect it to run rather smoothly. It typically does everything just fine, but, for example, when i watch an hd video on youtube (fully buffered) it jumps while it plays. My roommate uses a macbook pro and his youtube player never jumps and we're using the same internet connection. Are there any tweaks i could make to get better performance? Or would upgrading to 7 help me out any (i can get it for $15 so i might do it anyways)?

Thanks in advance!

For a start try to update your graphic card with latest drivers and make sure you have latest adobe flash player.
