I can play 1080p avi's but no 720p mkvs. MKV seems to make the system lag quite a bit. I normally keep everything closed out of when I watch a movie. It helps a fair bit. As far as the whole dell mini overheating, dont leave it on carpet or a bed, and make sure there is some airflow on the bottom of it. I personally just set it on top of 4 bottle caps from coke bottles when its on my desk. It stays pretty cool that way. If need be, you can always get a small 40mm-sh fan, and wire it to the WLAN port for power.
