Hey, i recently bought a mac mini 1.66ghz core duo with 512mb ram.

And i have been using apps like adium and colloguy and its all good so far, except somtimes i notice when im entering text into the applications itl kind of randomly lag behind what im typing then dump what i typed all at once.

Its a very rare thing, but its kind of anoying me a little, i was wondering if anyone knows about this or is experiencing this.

I have a thought it may have to do with the os spellcheck thing.

Daniel.

Maybe keep Activity Monitor (in the Utilities folder) open and looking at All Processes, sorted by CPU usage. This might show you whether an application or process is spiking and causing you lag. :)

Are you using the Universal Binary versions of the apps?
