Have you always had a lag problem or is this new? How large are your movie files? What version of OS X are you running? Is this the 13" or 15" model?

Where are your movie clips located? Preferably on your external drive. How full is your main drive? There needs to be enough free space to let the program swap and render previews. Previewing transitions will stress your computer because it is rendering "on the fly."
