    I've read the choppy UI issues that people have been experiencing, and to my knowledge there has been no fix for this as of yet.

    However, I think that my macbook not only suffers from the graphical UI issues but it's just straight up slow a lot of the time. I am a heavy Chrome user with multiple tabs open, got a few other apps open at the same time as well, but it should still be enough for a brand new Macbook Pro.

    Anything I can do to speed it up? I should note this is my first Mac ever.

    Got 16GB of RAM and 256GB SSD as well!

    Don't use Chrome, it's a poorly coded resource hog on OS X.

    What browser works well besides Safari on OSX?

    I don't get it, what's the problem with using safari?

    I use a site frequently that requires only Chrome.

    Try Firefox. Not as much of a resource hog and at least it doesn't spy on you.

    Will do, thanks!

    Any useful tricks I don't know about other than restarting your Mac to make it faster?

    Check your startup items and clear unnecessary ones so that they don't bog down the boot time. You've already got an SSD, so there's nothing much more that you can do to speed it up.
