    I have recently bought the top model 13 inch late 2013 macbook pro retina. It has 2.6ghz i5 8gb of ram and 500gb SSD. I expected that this would be able to run 1080p videos on youtube on full screen without slow down. 720p works fine. Is anyone else having this problem do i need to install some certain type of driver to help performance. I have div x, flash player installed.

    Thanks.

    It's your internet/youtube. It has nothing to do with the computer.

    Download and play from a local file, if OK it is the internet somewhere between you and the server, you don't have 50Mb link to the entire internet content.

    I firmly believe it to be YouTube/your internet as I can stream 1080p to my HDTV with no jumps/jitters on my mid-2012 cMBP.

    True. Youtube causes a lot of people problems on many devices at times.
