    Hello people,

    could someone here with late 2009 mac mini open the following pdf file? Just how smooth is the scrolling of the pdf file in preview?

    I am using late 2009 2.53ghz 4gig ram mac mini and the above pdf file scrolls very slowly. Not sure why this happens. The pdf file is just a patent files so nothing to worry about. Just need someone to confirm that im not alone facing this issue.

    Thank.

    My i7 iMac scrolls through it very slowly. It's slow because it is a very high res image imbedded in the PDF, not vector based.

    Same on my mini even in preview. It wasn't created using a PDF tool looks like a scan then convert dunno if that effects it.

    ok but the funny thing is the scrolling is smooth in windows so i am wondering how the graphics system is in Mac OS X compared to windows. Why is slow in Mac OS X than in Windows.
