    I currently have an rMBP that I generally love but can't ignore the lag in Safari when visiting sites like Facebook. I am now planning on replacing my Mac Pro 1,1 and was wondering if I would notice the same lag if I go down the 15" cMBP+TB display which has a somewhat similar resolution to the rMBP. I will be using the cMBP in clamshell mode.

    Any current owners with that similar setup that can shed some light?

    Nice- do you have the 512MB or 1GB graphics card version of the cMBP?

    Base 15" with 512mb. There isn't lag because it's not retina. It can drive the resolution just fine.
