    This has happened twice in the past few days. The computer crashes and has a gray screen with an error message. Can anyone help? Here is my error log:

    Willing to bet you have some 3rd party software/driver that's cuasing the issue - have you tried a CLEAN install?

    I just did a clean install and reinstalled all of my software. But how am I to know which software it is? I just bought this computer to get WORK done, not tinker with it for 2 weeks to figure out which of my applications is tripping up the computer. Is there any way to use that info from the log to see what the application is?

    Go through that list of kext's one by one....

    I'd probably start by googling the name of each piece of software with '10.8.2 crashes' or something like that.

    Get rid of USB OverDrive (or see if they have an update.)

    That program is notorious for causing kernel panics/crashes.

    There could also be an incompatibility between SmoothMouse and USB OverDrive. Both of those programs affect your mouse, so I would also look at removing one or the other.

    DoubleCommand too. Since that one affects keyboard, I would look at a compatibility issue between it and SmoothMouse and USB OverDrive (my money is on USB OverDrive, though.)

    I would look at those three first, updating or removing (I'd remove them) as necessary.

    The last two, Boom and TCPBlock, could be causing issues, but I would look at those first 3 first. Then look at updating Boom and TCPBlock (or removing them as well, if no updates are available.)

    Will do- the only reason iI have usb overdrive installed is so I can have the back/forward buttons on my mouse functional. Smooth mouse to help my mouse actually feel somewhat usable; coming from a PC, I can't believe how imprecise the pointer is on OS X while using a mouse. It's actually gotten so bad that I am considering selling my newly purchased MBP and returning my Thunderbolt display. I do graphic sensitive work for a living and can't believe how poor the acceleration is implemented on this machine. The pointer also bounces around and feels "slippery".

    Get a Wacom tablet - adding all these goofy third-party tweaks to your machine is a recipe for disaster.

    It's sad that I have to. I didn't think it would be an issue in OS X - especially since it's so dialed in in Windows. I prefer to use a mouse. I also have a magic mouse but the sensitivity is way too poor for every day use, I'll be returning it this week. I might pick up a higher end mouse just to see if that's the issue... Even though my Logitech mx518 works perfectly with my old Windows PC.

    All of our designers have a tablet.

    It's funny that you don't like the way the mouse pointer moves, people who are used to a Mac have the same complaint about Windows.

    Maybe ill get used to it, but I really think it might be a problem with my machine. It lags fairly often, and when I want to do precision movements the pointer is shaky. Something has to be up, whether with my mouse or computer.

    in Mouse Preferences - Try slowing down the Track Speed & Scroll.
    This could be the issue - just a guess.

    I've never had an issue with mouse precision in osx. Fiddle around with the mouse settings and you should be fine.

    First step in debugging crashes is to take out 3rd party software. You can't really blame osx if a 3rd party writes crappy drivers.

    Believe me, I've spent way too much time fiddling with these settings. On Windows, when I move the mouse- the pointer is an extension and follows it perfectly. If I move it slightly, it moves slightly and is precise. On OS X, the mouse jumps around when I try to move it in fine increments, and has inconsistent speed when moving across the screen. Hence the reason I have installed 3rd party software to try and rectify the issue.

    I removed a program called magicprefs and I am hoping that was the problem. Well see. Still though, apps like photoshop are performing worse than on my old HP Envy laptop, which is really surprising considering this MacBook is WAYY better spec-wise.

    I should have noted - the last time I had jumpy motion - it was always low power on the device.

    You're not on Windows. Not trying to be an ass, but if you try to make OSX be Windows you're in for a world of hurt. All the third party BS is your problem yet you're insisting you need it rather than listing what you're trying to do and let others help you with solutions. Clean OS and "all my software" means actual productivity software not 27 3rd party tweaks included.

    Bashing your Mac on a Mac board because "It's not like Windows" won't garner you a lot of sympathy, and better yet on a platform that's almost since it's inception been better at graphics work than any Windows machine. There's a reason companies like the one I work for exclusively use them in pre and post production.

    Doublecommand hasn't been updated since 2009 for starters.
    BoomDevice you show 1.1 loaded and they're at 1.5.1

    Whoa whoa whoa. Back up a second. Im not trying to make my Mac act like Windows. I am talking about a very BASIC function here: mouse tracking. I'm not bashing on my Mac. Im trying to optimize it so it works for me. I just shelled out $2,500 on the computer and monitor- you think I'm going to talk it down? This is not a OS debate, this is a simple feature that should be a non-issue on both machines. The reason I mentioned that its perfect on my Windows machine is so I can accurately say that I have a reference point to base my problem and I am not just imagining it. Seriously, this shouldn't even be a problem. It is better at graphics work- I do web design and have used an iMac at work in the past and preferred over Windows. I have only had this MacBook Pro for 5 days and I am trying to fix the issue before I have to get rid of it. I need precision, and whether I have a a problem with this computer or all Mac's is something I need to discover. But like I said, I did not notice this with my iMac at my old job (2009 model).

    But why install a bunch of software on it - that's not even of a vintage made for the OS no less - that goes to the core function of what you're having problems with, then do a reinstall and put it back on, rather than working through issues step by step?. You're going to be hard pressed to come here and find a soul that's going to back you up when many of us, myself included come from the Windows side and have found what you're experiencing to be the total opposite? The keyboard, trackpad and mouse functions on my MBP are far and away better than any Windows laptop I've ever owned barring maybe one of my boat anchor high end Thinkpads. And I run IT for a 3200 person organization, I see and evaluate a LOT of hardware.

    I mean doublecommand for instance. Other than keymap remap functions the whole purpose of that program was to supply two command keys... in the era of like TIger for an OS for chrissakes when current machines HAVE two command keys. And it was last updated 3 years before both Mountain Lion and your machine were released.
