    Hi bro, I just bought the new MacBook Pro 2017 13" w/ TB and transfer my data via TM form my 2013 MacBook Air.

    Overall performance is good but I have found that the iTunes animation especially in album view is very laggy.

    I have searched on the internet and know some people also have the same issue with the retina models.

    However, can anyone tell me if there is any way to fix this? Or can just wait for software update?

    FYI I only have laggy animation in iTunes but not in other areas, I have tried to change my display setting to sRGB and this issue can be improved a bit. However I don't want to compromise on this as I have spent a lot money on this new model...

    I can confirm there are several laggy functions with overall when the new macOS Sierra was launched, a lot of people have been calling Windows Vista to this version of macOS. I am not using 2017-model but 2016, and there are several problems which I have experienced. Specially startup is very slow according to previous Mac OS.

    Part of the old MR guard.
    If your laptop is new, and you restored from a Time Machine backup, Spotlight still might be indexing.

    I believe it is a purely software-related issue, and as far as I know there isn't any real way to fix it. I was affected as well when I bought my MBP 2016, and at the time animations in album view were so bad that they looked choppier than on my previous 2009 machine (fresh install, I didn't restore the old Mac). It took several OS and iTunes updates to bring things back to an acceptable level.
