    It seems like the UI lag on the retina MacBook Pro is a widespread issue among the users of this forum. Several threads have already been made, so I thought I should make a short survey in order to obtain an overview of the range of the problem.*

    If you would give a short answer on these few questions it would be to great.

    - General UI "fluidness":
    - Better/worse since Lion?:*
    - Better/worse with ML 8.2?:
    - Scrolling on
    - Scrolling on
    - Scrolling on
    - Mission Control lag:
    - Maximizing contacts app with green +-button:

    (optional comment)

    I'll post mine in a few minutes.

    1. When launching apps the "start up" animation feels a bit laggy
    2. Dont know
    3. Dont know using 10.8.1
    4. Laggy (safari)
    5. Worse than 4 (safari)
    6. Looks just fine (safari)
    7. Works just fine
    8. Very choppy and absolutely not acceptable

    Note: 2.6GHz/16GB/10.8.1, running Discrete Graphic card, Best for retina resolution

    BTW i have had a wifi issue on the first day i got this rMBP (the wifi keep disconnected me about 4 times in an hour), after adjusting my wifi's SSID channel then it works just fine

    1. General UI "fluidness": generally tolerable, but occasionally laggy animations depending on what I do.
    2. Better/worse since Lion?:* never used on rMBP
    3. Better/worse with ML 8.2?: running 10.8.1.
    4. Scrolling in much lagging. not acceptable.
    5. Scrolling on worse than pitchfork.
    6. Scrolling on good.
    7. Mission Control lag: occasionally laggy animations
    8. Maximizing contacts app with green +-button: horrible

    Note: running 2.6 Ghz/16 GB/10.8.1 - NOT running descret graphic card

    Encouraging everyone with rMBP to answer these few questions, as it would help us a lot understanding this issue better.
