    i'v already reported these bugs to apple, here:

    but i wanted to know if its a problem on all macs or just some -

    the new 3D dock makes desktop space switching laggy, and it only returns to full lion-like smoothness when in Hidden mode, or in 2D dock mode on the left or right.

    the other problem its caused is it makes LaunchPad icons slightly blurry, if you use the 2D dock on left or right, the LaunchPad icons return to full sharpness.

    then lastly, if i have the Dock in 2D mode on left or right position, there is then a laggyness and lack of smoothness in swiping the first 2 pages of my LaunchPad apps, only returns to smoothness when the 3D dock is back at the bottom!

    sigh, i hope this is fixed soon.

    amongst other ones i'v experienced:

    Freezes that result in hard resets.

    colour profile switching when graphics switches to discrete.

    Sorry, but I tried to recreate some of these "bugs" you're listing and I can't seem to do any of them. :(

    since you have a 2011 macbook pro, i wonder why its only a problem some are having.

    No desktop switching issues or blurry icon issues here either. Hope you get them worked out.

    i noticed the lagging issue is less apparent on my MBP screen. but its more obvious when im hooked up to my 1080p monitor.

    I see the problem with the jittery desktop switching with dock on bottom, but the other two do not exist here on a 2012 Air.

    I tried to replicate the blurry icons in launchpad, but could not. In fact, it seems that having the dock on the left or right actually makes the icons blurrier than having the dock on the bottom. This is presumably due to how the launchpad is rendered. When the dock is on the side, it squishes the launchpad horizontally.

    I have noticed the very very slight lag when switching spaces (especially dashboard) when the dock is on the bottom versus the left or right.
