    Anyone with the base 21.5 iMac notice any lag during the opening and closing animation of Dashboard? Wondering if its just me or a widespread drawback of having the integrated 9400M graphics?

    Cheers :)

    It's most probably the 9400M. I tried opening Dashboard on a base iMac at my Apple Store and it lagged a lot. Other models seemed OK.

    My iMac G4 (running Tiger) has smoother Dashboard/Expose animations than my 24" iMac, or just about any Mac that i've played with at the apple store. Not sure why, but its really strange and kind of depressing if you think about it.

    I just purchases an iMac 3.06 and the dashboard widgets appear and disappear instantly when I press the appropriate key on the Wireless Keyboard. :D

    I also have a VERY fast internet connection. Is it possible that the lag that some have noticed is due to getting a Slow internet connection to update the: Time, Weather, Stocks, etc??? :rolleyes:

    Dashboard

    I have the 21.5 with the 9400 and Dashboard is fast, no drag.

    Might suggest it was a software problem related to Beamsync, but that works too :)
