    Just picked up my first ever mac (MBP 15" 2.8) yesterday and having fun setting it all up.

    Is it normal that when i switch to full screen mode in iPhoto the pinch the zoom function is fairly slow and there's loads of lag when dragging around the photo with 2 fingers? Hopefully I'm missing something cause i wasn't expecting any lag anywhere on this thing!

    +1 (MBP 13", 2.26GHz CPU, 4GB RAM) - wondering the exact same thing. Photoshop CS4 has no issues...

    iPhoto '09 is surprisingly laggy doing anything, especially compared to older versions. Hopefully they fix that issue in '10.

    Well in that case I'm really quite disappointed. I had hoped there was a 'fix' or something I wasn't doing right.

    I have CS4 and also it has no probs. V annoying because i do like the full screen mode of iPhoto but without smooth transitions for the zooming it makes it very cumbersome.
