I would expect the RAM increase to help some. I'd also make sure you're running the latest version of Flash.

Search the forums for "hulu"--there are several threads discussing its performance and a few tips are listed.

Standard quality hulu works pretty well for me (only slightly jumpy sometimes), but he HQ ones are too intense for the Mini 9.

Choppy for me as well. Unless it's the Simpsons or Family Guy. I usually Fn+z the window to FS to get maximum window real-estate but it does nothing for the 'size' of the movie.

I have 2gigs of crucial btw

Also, remember to have your Dell Mini 9 plugged in to enable the Atom to run at full whack...
