Hey folks, so overall I'm pretty happy with my computer but I noticed some odd issues tonight. I had minecraft running with a HD texture pack, skype for VOIP, chrome, and itunes. Everything but itunes was running in one desktop, itunes was running separately in another. Switching between all the programs in desktop 1 was ok (only a little laggy), but as soon as I switched to itunes, it became very sluggish, especially when activating expose. When I switched itunes over to the same desktop as the other programs, everything sped up (still not full speed, but much faster). I checked istatpro and everything seemed fine, my cpu was barely being used and I had plenty of available ram (no pageouts) Something still seems off though, because as I'm typing this message out, there is a definite delay to when I press the keys and when the characters appear. Am I expecting too much of a core i7, 8GB of ram, and a 256GB SSD or is there some software issue with having programs in separate desktops? I spent quite a bit of money on this computer (between the initial cost and aftermarket upgrades), so I'm hoping it's a software glitch somewhere (or something I'm doing wrong with my setup).
