2012 Slow video response

I am having an issue with Solidworks 2012 on a new Dell Inspiron 7000 14.

 

For instance, if I am inside an assembly, and I select a mate within the navigation pane it takes about 5 seconds while the system slowly highlights the edge or face.  It's like watching an image load on a 14.4K modem.  This problem is compounded if you accidentally roll over a few different mates, then you can find yourself just sitting there watching everything on the screen slowly highlight then go back to normal. 

 

The system has a Gen 4 i5, 6GB of memory, Intel HD 4400 integrated video.  I had no issues running the same install of Solidworks on a 4-year old "lesser" laptop. 

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
