I got a lag when I switch between workspaces (four fingers left/right).

Can somebody confirm this?

I assume this is the weak ivy bridge graphics. If this is true only the next generation will fix this....

Try disabling automatic graphics switching ( and see if that helps. It may be trying to use the slower integrated graphics over the dedicated GPU.

Also, you may experience lag when using a scaled resolution. This is most likely a hardware issue but future software revisions may help.
