I'm guessing it's the new physics system, and I think it's CPU bound, because in the first few minutes, when you send a mine cart or something down some rails to smash a baracade my system slowed down to about 1fps, then HL crashed.
So I played Portal yesterday and all was good :) (except water effects which also hit my pooter hard, roll on enough cash to upgrade)
Oh, and hooray for this man flu that's had me off work for two days... ;)
but take my advice and make sure that you play it in as few separate sittings as possible. This isn’t the type of game you should dip in and out of for five minutes at a time, though you easily could. This is the type of game you should spend some serious time on, exploring the world that Valve has delicately crafted for you.
such as stealing so many grenades from a charging zombie with your physics gun, which unlocks an achievement called HotPotat0wned.

but no game this short is worth the amount of time waiting.
episode 3 better come in less than a year, or else Valve will be loosing many many players.
