I just got the new 17 inch macbook pro and I have no whine or the heat issues and no dead pixels and is pretty much near perfection, except that when running on battery the expose for all windows lags a bit. I'm trying to remember if it does this on my previous 17 inch powerbook but I think it did as well. Anyone else seeing this??

Arghhhhhh - mine has an annoying whine. Lucky you!

No but for me when on battery expose doesn't lag.

That's really strange, the only reason I can think is that it throttles the CPU down when it's on battery--but personally on my 1.83ghz MacBook I have no problems.

hmm.. that's pretty strange... try this unpluging the mag safe and wait about 10 seconds, then open up more than 1 folders and then use the "all windows" expose and the movement doesnt look as fluid as when plugged in.

Now I do see what you're talking about; though I wouldn't call it "lag" per se - I perceive that to mean there is some kind of delay or stutter in function. But that isn't what I'm seeing happen when I try this test. It just moves a little slower, no delays/stuttering... it just takes slightly longer for a window to go from its beginning point and scale to its end point and scale. That said, it is barely slower - I wouldn't have noticed it if you hadn't pointed it out. Another way to really notice it is to use that Exposé function repeatedly in quick succession, then, while still doing all windows Expose, pull out the Magsafe. Keep doing it, and eventually you'll notice it'll slow down a little bit.

If you do the same excersise again for the same amount of time without unplugging, it never slows down.

when plugged in no doubt its fast everytime and perfect but yea from beginning to end the all windows slows down a bit on battery but not shuttering or laggy "missused words."
