    Hi,

    I am going to buy me293 retina macbook but i am concerned about lags in the os like mission control or lags in safari when viewing a video or resizing the page are these because of IRIS and are these lags fixed in mavericks or not have you been facing these issues, any help will be appreciated

    For what's worth, I've tried the model you speak of in the store, and there is no lagging whatsoever. The Iris Pro is a fine GPU, provided you don't do any 3D work or gaming.

    Well then the Iris Pro would be sufficient for your needs. It's a very quick and responsive machine when you try it out. I didn't put it through the paces but others have and can only speak highly of it.

    No problem. When you get it, go hard on it. If it fails your rigorous tests then return it within the 14-day window.

    It can be used for games and 3D tasks fine, Iris Pro is better at OpenCL tasks, 650m/750m is better at gaming and CUDA tasks.
