Have you tried Optifine?

It's done wonders for my daughters laptops and even helps make minecraft run smoother on my desktop pc with extra detail settings switched on :)

It's even handier if you have many cores on your CPU, it allows multithreaded block loading :D

Yeah, I use Optifine. It gives me a little boost, but not a heck of a lot. I have a lot of features turned off.
