It seems like the UI lag on the retina MacBook Pro is a widespread issue among the users of this forum. Several threads have already been made, so I thought I should make a short survey in order to obtain an overview of the range of the problem.*

If you would give a short answer on these few questions it would be to great.

- General UI "fluidness":
- Better/worse since Lion?:*
- Better/worse with ML 8.2?:
- Scrolling on www.pitchfork.com:
- Scrolling on www.aftenposten.no:
- Scrolling on www.nrk.no:
- Mission Control lag:
- Maximizing contacts app with green +-button:

(optional comment)

I'll post mine in a few minutes.

1. When launching apps the "start up" animation feels a bit laggy
2. Dont know
3. Dont know using 10.8.1
4. Laggy (safari)
5. Worse than 4 (safari)
6. Looks just fine (safari)
7. Works just fine
8. Very choppy and absolutely not acceptable

Note: 2.6GHz/16GB/10.8.1, running Discrete Graphic card, Best for retina resolution

BTW i have had a wifi issue on the first day i got this rMBP (the wifi keep disconnected me about 4 times in an hour), after adjusting my wifi's SSID channel then it works just fine

1. General UI "fluidness": generally tolerable, but occasionally laggy animations depending on what I do.
2. Better/worse since Lion?:* never used on rMBP
3. Better/worse with ML 8.2?: running 10.8.1.
4. Scrolling in www.pitchfork.com: much lagging. not acceptable.
5. Scrolling on www.aftenposten.no: worse than pitchfork.
6. Scrolling on www.nrk.no: good.
7. Mission Control lag: occasionally laggy animations
8. Maximizing contacts app with green +-button: horrible

Note: running 2.6 Ghz/16 GB/10.8.1 - NOT running descret graphic card

Encouraging everyone with rMBP to answer these few questions, as it would help us a lot understanding this issue better.
