Window dragging lag on one mac but not on the other; what setting is different?

I have two machines, a macbook and an imac and both have an app which lets me drag windows around. The app has no options.

  • On the macbook, there's no animation or lag while dragging, the window stays right with the cursor.
  • On the iMac though, there's a decent lag to the dragging motion with any app except Terminal. Yet if I just drag a window the normal way (grab the top bar), there's no lag for any app.

While the macbook is a much faster machine and the settings have been heavily tweaked over the years, that wouldn't explain why Terminal has no lag.

What settings could be involved here that would account for the lag?
