    I'm still getting scroll lag in my base 15" rmbp (particularly chrome), anyone else have the same issue? Also, the scrolling issue is really bad in spotify, to the point that the choppiness is so obvious.

    Does the mbp throttle performance during battery mode? I seem to feel that the mbp feels sluggish when its on battery mode, and accelerates back into normal when i plug it in or it could just be me =\

    Yep, Spotify is laggy, but its kind of their fault. They had over a year now to fix their code for the retina machines, but they already stated that they have no interest in doing this.

    I've seen lags in Firefox with Facebook, but switching to Safari seems to have fixed it. So I suspect its within Chrome.

    No it's not chrome nor firefox it is all safari in these later OS's

    Safari on my Lion machines are perfectly silky smooth thank you very much.

    Same for me on the latest Macbook Pro since upgrading to OSX 10.9. I almost have exactly the same software setup on my office iMac (Mid 2011) but I see the lagging only on the Macbook, not on the older hardware.

    I also tried several screen resolutions (e.g. back to "optimal retina") but that didn't help.

    Not for me... my Macbook scrolling lags when connected to the power as well.
