    I've got the new retina MacBook pro, low-end

    Then I found this serious problem

    When the os is running on HD3000 graphic, the animation is very very slow and laggy, it becomes much better when on 650m

    If you got one with HD3000, you should march down to the Apple Store and demand a replacement.

    I believe he meant HD4000. But this is a problem with RMBP but that's software issue and should be resolved in ML.

    Keep in mind that the HD 4000 is an integrated graphics chip. IIRC it can drive two displays, maybe one of them dual-link DVI.

    The RMBP has nearly as many pixels as a single-link and a dual-link DVI display combined.

    I guess that's the reason why it's struggling.

    Have you updated your software? Supposedly there was an update to help this.

    Make sure you have all the updates installed. There was like 1.5gb of updates to install when I first opened mine up. I'm running on 1920x1200 resolution and it is completely fine.

    my mac is experiencing frequent kernel panic after sleep (10.8 dp4)

    My two macs (early 2011 model, 15' and retina mbp) are experiencing kernel panic after sleep.

    my 2011 mac has this problem since i purchased from store. it has 2~3 panics each day (running on 10.7 lion, from 10.7.0 to 10.7.3)

    I have tried everything to solve this, reinstalling lion, replacing HDD, replacing SSD, useless.

    Then i upgraded it to 10.8 mountain lion (dp3, dp4), it persists. so im pretty sure it's not OS's problem.

    my new retina macbook pro has the same issue, whichever OS on (10.7 or 10.8), it keep crashing almost everytime i put mac back from sleep.

    This happens every time when i tries to awake my mac from sleep, the screen gives me a warning with 6 languages ask me to reboot the machine.

    Anyone suggestions will be appreciated!

    good day!:D

    If it's still under warranty, take it back to Apple and get it fixed/replaced

    Sounds like a piece of external hardware (external hd, keyboard, display, etc.) Unplug everything. If the problem goes away, reconnect devices one at a time until you pinpoint the problematic hardware. It would also be worthwhile to check the kernel panic logs.

    I would also suggest to take a look on what apps you are putting on those
