[ubuntu-uk] Asus x52f performance

Hi all,

I recently bought an Asus X42F laptop computer with a Nehalem Core i3
M330 CPU with integrated Intel HD GPU.

I'm finding that it works somewhat better under Windows 7 than under
Ubuntu. For example:

My son play flash games on the Internet. I've seen a bit of graphical
corruption on a couple of these (under Chrome).
The 'stripy' texture on the iPlayer website background seems to
flicker. As daft as it sounds, it's a bit like when someone with a
stripy suit went on TV in the olden days ;-)
Web browsing in Chrome on Ubuntu feels slower than that on Windows.

Intel graphics drivers were detected and installed automatically, and
Unity seems to be running properly.

Can anyone throw any light on what might be happening here.
