    Hi everyone,

    just got my base 13" MBA a few days ago and while I'm still getting everything balanced with the battery etc. I've noticed something that I don't know if it'll 'get better' over time.

    I've noticed graphics glitches while I was streaming video on Hulu.

    I put some screenshots in the attachment for you guys to see. It's much more noticeable while it's actually playing but I did my best to capture the glitch as a still.

    Is it a software issue or is it a hardware fault?

    Also, don't know if it is relevant, but I have Click2Flash installed so that I could minimize the effect of battery waste while using Flash.

    it could be faults in the stream, or the GPU may not be powerful enough to support high bit rate streaming.

    update 10.7.1, addressing the first major Lion issues has just been released, be sure to get it, in order to hopefully fix your problems.
