    If you mean by ripple that the the web page scrolling is decomposed in bands that not normal. Does it happen in specific sites ? Does it happend in macrumors for example.

    Try turning on 'use smooth scrolling' in System Preferences->Appearance

    The screen refreshes itself a certain number of times a second - smooth scrolling ensures that the Mac does all the scrolling work in between each refresh and makes the scroll look perfect. Turning smooth scrolling off can mean that the screen updates mid-scroll which you can see as a 'tearing' effect in the page.

    Turning smooth scrolling off is quicker and more efficient, and the effect isn't a big deal. It's good that Apple gives a choice.

    Let us know if that fixed your problem.

    I have tried it with smooth scrolling on and off and it still seems to be doing it on all web pages including Mac rumors. This is my second Macbook within a week as the 1st was doing it too, its hard to describe but i found this

    it sounds exactly the same problem as I'm trying to describe
