    I have the 11" 128/4GB/1.4 and am experiencing really slow and jerky scrolling in the iTunes store. Everything is fine when I'm in my libraries, it's just the store. It's the only program that really doesn't run snappy, and I'm wondering if this is a common occurrence because iTunes is slow, or if it's something with my MBA. Does anyone have a similar problem?

    Yeah I have the exact same problem as you do. I'm on a 1.4/4/128 11" as well.

    I also noticed that when I play 720p in itunes, the bar near the bottom that has the pause/rewind/play controls lags a little when it shows up and disappears.

    When I played the exact same 720p in quicktime, it was a lot snappier, so it might just be a problem with itunes.

    It is because iTunes is a God-awful affront to Apple's otherwise very good software lineup. Seriously, it is just a slow, aging application.
