Diablo® III

Laggy on my laptop (w/ ATI graphics card)

I am lagging on my laptop in Diablo 3 randomly. When I am in town, (with not much going on) I do not lag but randomly
I start to lag when there are more people/monsters I believe. I set all the settings in D3 to the lowest/off, unchecked
anti-aliasing, checked FX, unchecked letterbox and unchecked v-sync. I also have the two max fps boxes checked with the
foreground fps set to 60-80 (I've been changing it around to see if its better) and background fps set to min.

Here is my specs of my laptop.

Operating System:
Windows 2.6.1.7600
CPU Type:
Intel® Core™ i5 CPU M 520 @ 2.40GHz
CPU Speed:
2.42 GHz
System Memory:
3.86 GB
Video Card Model:
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470
Video Card Memory:
2.67 GB
Video Card Driver:
atiumdag.dll
Desktop Resolution:
1366x768
Hard Disk Size:
283.4 GB
Hard Disk Free Space:
157.73 GB (56%)

(I updated the newest driver from the ATI website for my graphics card)

My friend also plays on his laptop that has a similar specs as mine and he has the same settings in D3 as me but he does
not lag (sometimes he does when there is a lot of things going on).

This is his laptop specs.

Operating System:
Windows 2.6.1.7600
CPU Type:
Intel® Core™ i5 CPU M 450 @ 2.40GHz
CPU Speed:
2.42 GHz
System Memory:
3.68 GB
Video Card Model:
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M
Video Card Memory:
2.55 GB
Video Card Driver:
nvd3dum.dll
Primary Display Resolution:
1366x768
Secondary Display Resolution:
1920x1080
Hard Disk Size:
451.8 GB

291.24 GB (64%)

I am not sure why he does not lag but I do even though everything is basically the same except for the graphics cards.

Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

5470 is a lot weaker than 330M
