I assume you are using the same laptop as per your good experience a few years ago? What video chip does your lappy use?

Probably your game settings were lower then than now. Try reducing the settings for the soldiers, also remove grass altogether and possibly reduce vegetation settings. AA can have some effect depending on your video card, my recent Nvidia card doesn't care whether I have AA set to highest or lowest the framerate appears to be the same, however with older cards I've used in the past it seems to make a difference.

I have given up on my old laptop even though I used to play mp quite happily but I have just been lucky in that the Mrs bought me a new laptop, it isn't top of the range but it is supposed to be a games laptop so I will try again, lol.
