Hardware Acceleration Disabled by default? --> snappier LO [closed]

On my hardware, (GeForce 9 9800 GT, Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GB RAM), after disabling it LO runs really faster and snappier. A new feeling when using it now.

The hardware acceleration checkbox applies to Impress slideshows only - and there, depending on your operating system and display drivers, running w/o it might indeed boost performance (or degrade it) - it's simply excercising different code paths in your graphics subsystem.

For most cases, though, having this enabled yields faster & nicer results.

The hardware acceleration (which is on by default) does not work with a Dell XPS13 laptop.

It causes the slideshow screen to be completely messed up (either with builtin display or an external screen through a DA20 adapter). Disable hardware acceleration and it works fine.
