Just in case anyone cares, I returned it to Best Buy today and replaced it with the exact same model. The new one runs perfectly fine and does not stutter at all while watching videos on YouTube or any of the other video streaming sites I've tried. Seems like there was something wrong specifically with that computer's hardware and not necessarily the model/processor.

Good. There's no reason a brand new laptop should have trouble playing vids on YouTube.
