Almost always, rebuffering activity is a result of a poor network environment. This is always made more apparent when playing material which is transcoded to WAV on the server due to the higher bit rate for the audio data being sent. Unless your laptop is doing lots of other stuff it is very unlikely to be responsible. Ogg does require more processing power than codecs like FLAC, but not normally enough to cause problems.
