You just have to accept that with notebooks. You're best running windows XP and if you don't have Service Pack 3 installed.... install it; it's always provided a significant boost in performance when I've used it on my laptop. Also if you can't be bothered with regularly defragmenting, consider programs like Magical Defrag which do it in the background when the computer is idle for a few moments. There's also a lot of guides for boosting performance in XP but I wouldn't bother with them as many only provide a minimal boost in exchange for the loss of a service you may need down the line. The only one I've noticed a significant difference when disabling is System Restore.
