    I am curious if anyone using a Mac with Nvidia 9400M graphics noticed a slowness of the GUI in Lion. On my Mac mini (early 2009) the animations stutter most of the time. Sometimes when I have more than 6 or 7 windows opened I can't even use Mission Control. I press F3, the windows start to zoom out, then freeze for a short moment, then everything zooms back in.

    The Xbench User Interface Test score says all:
    - Snow Leopard 10.6.8: 226.87
    - Lion: 56.95.

    That's not acceptable even for a 2 years old computer.

    Incredible, I turned off Bluetooth and now the Xbench score in Lion is 200. What the hell is going on?!?
