Windows 7: Windows Aero Window Dragging

Windows Aero Window Dragging

I am currently using a Samsung minitower with an Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.93 GHz. I have noticed that dragging around windows (with Windows Aero) is much smoother with the Samsung, which uses an NVIDIA G210. My Mac (Windows 7 x64) uses a much more powerful AMD 6750M, but window dragging is jerky and lags somewhat. Does anyone know what's causing this?

The mobile GPU most likely has less memory, and/or utilises shared memory, I'm not sure how it works with the macbooks. But a mobile GPU will tend to have worse performance than a desktop one.

I don't think that's the case here - The AMD 6750M has 1GB of dedicated RAM, and can play Bad Company 2 DirectX 11 with all settings maxed at 60 FPS (1440x900). Perhaps a different with the way AMD and NVIDIA cards are used by Windows?

Window maximizes by dragging to top.
It seems by design in Windows 7, a window will maximize if dragged to the top of the display. It seems to work, but I would like to say I don't really want it to do that. I move windows to the top of my display all the time just to use all the available space so I do not like it maximining if I go...

I cannot for the life of me work out how to do this on 7! Driving me mad... In XP / Vista it's as easy as right click, properties, advanced settings under where you change the Window colour etc then untick the box which says 'Show Window's contents whilst dragging' at least I think that's right!...
