Is slight UI lag normal?

    I am suffering from slight UI lag on a 2016 15". It's minimal, but still noticeable. Such as 0.5s lag and choppy transition into fullscreen mode. Closing windows, as well, is met with lag of about half a second. I know it's small, but definitely noticeable - and gets quite annoying. I don't see this is an issue to take it back to the Apple Store, but do you know any way to fix it?

    I've also had a poor experience with local Apple Store when having shutdown issues, and even though I was in return period, seemed angry when I asked to return it so I did it online. So, I'd rather not bring up such a minor issue like this, especially as I'm now out my return period.

    No, I do not believe this is normal. There is no lag on my nTB 2016, and with the 15's I have used I have not personally noticed UI lag, and I would have noticed as UI lag is a pet peeve of mine.

    Have you already ruled out that this could be caused by any third party software or a usage-based scenario?
    Have you ran Disk Utility First Aid, reset the PRAM and SMC?
    Have you tried reinstalling macOS and performing the Apple Diagnostics to check for hardware issues?
