    When running the cursor through the document, the magnification has a slow and annoying frame rate... for some reason it seems to only do it when the dock is at the bottom of the screen. When the dock is at the left and right of my screen it runs fine. Anyone experiencing this? It was all running fine when SL was on my Mac...:confused:

    Hi,

    I'm in the same situation as you, after upgrading to lion the dock magnification is laggy.

    Hope this gets fixed soon.

    2010 iMac 27" w/ 2.8 GHz Core i5

    I'm yet to test it on my 2010 13" MBP.


    The Dock Magnification isn't always laggy for me, just sometimes.

    Yes, for me too. It's the only laggy animation though, the rest are fine.

    Im glad its not just me thats noticed the laggy dock magnification. I thought the worst and assumed it must be something horribly wrong with my setup somewhere, but Im glad to see others are experiencing the same thing. Heres hoping Apple get to fixing these silly bugs, of which there appears to be quite a few.

    I'm running Lion on a late 2008 Macbook Unibody. 2.4ghz Core 2 Duo, 250 gb hd, 4g RAM.

    I put the dock on the right side of my screen and there is barley any lag when it's over there. However, when I put it back to the bottom it still seems laggy. This has to be fixed.

    To be honest I am not noticing any lag whatsoever on my late 2009 mini. That seems weird as I had MAJOR legginess problems with Snow Leopard throughput the first months of its release up to 10.6.5 or so.

    Lion is really fast.

    I have a machine with similar specs and noticed a lag. I shut off the magnification on the dock as a result.

    Having the same problem with my Macbook Pro from 2011 with the Core i5 processor. After the upgrade the dock magnification has a small lag that is somewhat noticeble. Also you if you a few apps opened up and use the 4 finger swipe for Mission Control, you can notice a small animation lag too.

    This problem how ever, is fixed once I boot up the Steam application. Once you do that, everything is running smooth again for the animations on the dock and Mission Control. There seems to be a sort off energy saving mode when the GPU is not fully used. And Steam for some reason boosts up the GPU a bit causing no more animation lagness. So apparently without those GPU app running, the OS is not giving itself the GPU power to run the animations smoothly. Friend of mine who is an Apple technician recommended to wait for the coming updates and see if it will be fixed then. A lot of big fixes are coming in the 10.7.2.

    Unfortunately the 10.7.2 update did not fix the problem for me with the dock :(. It get's fixed once I open up Steam again but when I close it, the dock and Mission Control lag comes back. Really hoping this gets some attention from Apple soon.
