    Hi all,

    Just wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing this with the new MacBook Pro 13":

    After a few minutes of rebooting the machine i will use spotlight and it will be very flickery. Like when updating results, the blue bar flickers white and blue very quickly and almost unnoticeable.

    Also, related, when scrolling a list in the dock through a stack shown in list mode, it flickers a lot there as well. Is this normal behaviour for these machines/leopard in general? I'm used to using a crappy old iBook so i dont know if im just being pedantic.

    While I have a 15" MBP, I can safely say that type of behavior is not normal and I'd call apple on it. You may have a flaky GPU that will probably get worse as time goes on.
