Laggy UI

Today I bought a new 2015 Macbook Pro Retina 13'. The screen is amazing, and it's slim, but I can't help but notice that the UI is a little more laggy than I would have expected from a brand new laptop. This is especially true when using Mission Control. So my question is if anyone here is using El Captain on the Macbook Pro, and if the OS runs better.

I'm on El Cap DP2 and it's so bloody smooth on my late-2013 13". It's definitely smoother than Yosemite.

Give El Capitan a try, very fluid for me on my 13" 2015 3.1/16/512 while having vm running for web dev stuffs.

El capitan is better but it's still fairly laggy. The app drawer is laggy, scrolling in safari can be laggy and launchpad is laggy. I don't know that they can fix it 100% with their current team and how the os handles scaling

I understand. I understand that lag can't be eliminated entirely, but I would at least like for some of it to be remedied. Especially all that lag while using mission control, because that is a feature I use fairly frequently.
