I am using 11.10 (on Virtuabox) on a brand new Samsung Series 7 with switchable graphics, which I am assuming that could be part of the issue here.
The graphics card is integrated Intel / and an ATI 6750M with 1 gigabyte of VRAM. I have Virtualbox (on Windows 7) set to the Maximum Performance setting so that it always kicks on the ATI card. I have Virtualbox set to use 128 MB (the maximum) of VRAM.
Almost all of the graphics are slow, if I launch Terminal it will take 5 or 6 seconds to even launch. If I type into the terminal, it will take 5 seconds or so for the characters to appear.
Has anyone else had any issues with this?
