    Alright this is weird. QE is supposed to take advantage of AGP 2x and a 16MB Graphics Card, and that what I have. MacOSRumors says it takes advantage too, but I am about 99.9 percent sure its not workign on my computer.

    First, I don't have a shadow around my mouse.

    Second, I performed the thing on MOSR about opening CPU Monitor, and moving around a window really quickly. I was using about 80percent of my CPU, while it says their Powerbook 667 was using about 5-10percent.

    So, what is going on here?

    you must have a Radeon card to take advantage. It's in the requirements. ATI cards must be Radeon.

    Thanks for clearing that up though.

    And another thing...

    I saw in a few movies, that people would minimize a window, then drag it out of the dock and set it somewhere, and it would float there!
    I try to do that, by minimizing, and then pulling it out and trying to set it somewhere, and it just sucks back to the dock..

    How do i do that?

    that also baffled me. i tried it on 6c98 at the apple store. it didn't work. i really hope they didnt take it out. it was a feature i was looking forward to.

    Check Finder preferences for that. I don't have it available at the moment, so I can't check it now.

    Also, the 16MB video cards are the Radeon Mobility in the laptop machines.
