A few questions:

Does this delay affect shell interaction already, or is it present
only in vi?

Does it happen inside an X session (terminal) or at the console?
If inside X, which input method are you using, and how?

Do you use the system locally or via network connection?

Lagging _could_ be a problem of networking (if networking is
involved here). But any program generating system load could
interfere with input processing, so check "top" output for
any suspicious values. Also try "reset" to get rid of any
terminal misconfiguration that might have happened.
