Same with you getting a new computer that will be lag. There is just so much a computer can handle.
Some causes of lag.
Your internet connection going down or being overwhelmed.
Your computer running to many programs for it to handle. I.E. other sites and chat programs.
These are just some of the causes.
I'll just add two more causes to that list there heiko:
1. The server is overwhelmed by players(ref: all crowded global servers during peak times)
2. Server maintenance and upgrades/updates.
3. Botters en masse cause lag, its just inevitable you can't have that many signals running back and fourth and not get lag out of it.
Having said that, lag can be dealt with, or so my hubby says... he plays on 3 different servers, and when one is to laggy, he just jets on over to the next... helps with drama to, for all of you who just love that chatbox.
