    In graphic heavy web pages, the scrolling is a little slow. Is this fixed with a 15?

    Other than that it is fantastic. The speed is on par with my windows quad core i5. The trackpad and screen are next to none. Loving this laptop so far.

    The only thing i was thinking was that if the 15" solved the browsing thing, i might just give the wife the 13 and get a 15 for myself.

    Nope, the scrolling is pretty much laggy on any Mac when Adobe's Flash plug-in is present on a browser page(at least in Safari).

    I recommend ClickToFlash to avoid this and obtain butter smooth scrolling throughout every page.

    Can you give an example website with the slow scrolling? Because my 2008 MacBook doesn't lag with scrolling webpages...even with flash and chit that Apple hates.

    Click to flash is the way to go. Plus, with flash turned off you can get an extra hour or two of battery life. At least I do when it is off.

    Is there a plugin like ClicktoFlash for Firefox?

    Dont forget adblock - its also very good.

    Just remembered there is an app on the mac app store thats blocks all flash for all web browsers and its free. Te name escapes me atm but have a look.
