    How is it possible an iPad 2/3 and 4/4s iPhone be far more fluid surfing the Internet than a macbook pro 2011 (i5) on pages like facebook and so ..? Bastente I am disappointed with my purchase of macbook pro because I thought it was equally or more fluid than the iPhone ..
    Macbook Pro in the letters to make scrolling very trembles on the iPad is very fluid and no shakes .. how is it possible?
    Someone you have can compare the two ..

    Sorry my bad English, we used the google translator.

    VIDEO

    thank you

    Sounds like an issue with your Macbook Pro. My 2009 MBP scrolls just as smoothly as an iPad or iPhone. My 2012 MBP scrolls similarily smoothly.

    Same here with my 2008 and 2011 MBPs. No problems with scrolling.

    Thanks for the answers

    With Lion ?
    I went to Fnac (here in Portugal) and experienced the macbook pro that were exposed and there also had to do scrolling lag .. when you guys do scroll on facebook, do not notice the text on the page to shake enough?

    Can it be possible that you iPhone/iPad opened faster because the page was a mobile site?
    If not, have you taken to a genius?

    Open the full site in both machines. You were probably on the mobile site on the iPhone.

    No, its the full website !!
    I dont understand..I think the problem is the HD 3000 .. and already I've been researching and there are people with the same problem (shudder at the image to scroll)

    PS: Video !

    My guess is that it is your internet speed. If you are scrolling faster than the pictures and text can load then you will get shuddering.

    Facebook scrolls smooth on my late 2011 13".

    I have no problems here (late 2011 13)

    Hi,

    You saw the video? the text page shakes not like mine?
    Not even I can understand how the macbook pro with far superior to the iPad hardware and is less fluid ..

    I don't see the text "shaking" as you say...it looks to me like it's lagging a bit because Facebook is loading the photos. You're scrolling very fast, and there's content that has to load. What does it look like on a page that's mostly text without tons of pictures?

    Exactly! Hence my suggestion that it's more likely to be internet speed than the macbook pro...

    Ah, I wonder if what the OP is referring to is the stop/start of the scrolling as he lifts and moves his fingers back down/up the trackpad when he gets to the end?

    Of course the iPhone/iPad have inertial scrolling so the scrolling continues for a while after you take your fingers off the screen whereas it stops immediately on a Mac. That gives a more "fluid" motion to the scrolling.

    Try scrolling upwards on Facebook to see if the loading of images is causing the shudder.

    Thanks for the answer but I scroll too slow as I show in the videos for a few seconds is still the same .. just compared it to a friend of mine and was like mine, once again I ask, the iPhone has the same effect of inertia on the scroll, much less hardware powerful and the image is super smooth and does not tremble .. but because it is anyway: x
    Thanks for all the answers.

    1) Facebook is PHP based - the server is pushing data to your browser in real-time. When you scroll that quickly, Safari is trying to get all the data from the server quickly while processing and rendering the page. I think it's doing a good job.

    2) On my old 2009 Mac, which is much less powerful than yours, websites like Time scroll like butter. I don't use any Flash blocking utility.
