    [This may very well be my first post on MacRumors, I've been reading forever.]

    I just bought a new MacBook Pro 15" (the $2499 version) at the Apple Store. My old computer had trouble processing the "Collage" effect on a photo screensaver. (where the pictures keep zooming out and forming new pictures.) so I wanted to see how this new computer (with it's 512MB vid card) could handle the screen saver.)

    Can anyone else with a new MacBook Pro see if they could emulate this problem as well? Just open system prefs and test a sample screensaver.

    If not, I guess I'm crazy.

    Thanks

    I don't quite understand... what's not working? Are the pics not loading, is the system going slow and fans kicking in? What happens when the screen saver starts?

    Cheers,

    Sorry for not clarifying! When I click the collage button, system preferences unexpectedly quits before even loading the screen saver preview, and then I have to relaunch system prefs again.

    I'm using an "old" (Feb '08) MBP, and it works just fine.

    Screen savers are a waste of everything.

    Electricity.
    Time and money to develop them.
    Your computer's lifetime.

    Just set it so that your monitor turns off after a specified amount of time. You will be doing your bank account, your computer, and the environment a favor.

    Yeah, but since the computer will probably outlast it's useful lifespan, it doesn't matter. ;)
