[Laptop] Momentary lag when I alt+tab/copy and paste?!

I purchased my laptop on boxing day and this has been a problem from day 1; I'm not actually sure why I've not queried this before, but here I am.

Basically, every time I copy and paste something, or alt+tab, or do anything like that, my cursor will freeze for a second. It's REALLY frustrating when I'm doing work and playing games and stuff and I just hope it's fixable. I asked my cousin and he said it might be to do with the specs, but I can run WoW on this and stuff - surely pasting isn't too difficult! Hopefully it's just a setting that I can switch off somewhere?!

Thank you in advance!


EDIT: Also happens when I press the 'Enter' key.

Hi Conzy :D
As the computer is new rather than risk voiding the warranty I would return the
laptop to the store and have them sort it out, it is their responsibility.
