I'm a young web designer, graphics designer, and programmer that took the plunge into the computer science field at the age of twelve, and have been learning as much as I could ever since.

I have experience with computer dev topics, including: AJAX, jQuery, JavaScript, AJAX.org, PHP, MySQL, Wordpress, Joomla! (and making templates for it), C++, C#, Smalltalk, Java, and JavaFX, NXT-G Robot-C, and QBASIC, among others (AutoHotKey and beyond).

I also have experience with design topics and various environments, including: HTML, CSS, XML, Flash, Dreamweaver, Aptana Studio, Eclipse, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, Flash Catalyst, Netbeans IDE, the MS Office suite (very good with PowerPoint and Word in particular). For what it is worth, I also have had exposure to AutoCAD and PTC CAD software.

My favorite operating system is the Windows OS for web design and programming, while Mac is my preferred OS for the Creative Suite.

Some of my side hobbies (the above are my main ones) include robotics, writing (blogging mainly), and reading. One fun fact is that I used to crochet, knit, and sew as a pastime.

@bassplayer7, yeah I'm really glad it worked! Here's to hoping both of our computers continue to run smoothly for many years to come.

@bassplayer7, here are my findings, as promised.

@bassplayer7, that's reassuring. Hopefully if I do this the "old school" way without Migration Assistant, this lag problem will just go away. I'll definitely let you know what happens if and when I try!

@bassplayer7, I'm thinking that perhaps migration assistant could be messing something up? Perhaps if I install a clean system, and manually copy over all my files and reinstall the core group of programs that I use, the lag issue might disappear. Or maybe that is just wishful thinking on my part. IF this lag continues for any longer, however, I will have to try something!

Thanks for the quick answer! I already tried turning off Automatic graphics switching, but to no avail. I'm having the same problems. Again, with it turned off, I had no problems before the reboot (and my MacBook was driving two monitors). I'll probably try clearing my cache but I'll probably have to go with a system re-install (shudder), which I'm not looking forward to at all.

Yes! I've never had a reboot where the lag is gone, but I have observed that sometimes, the lag isn't as pronounced. Hmm. I am fairly confident in ruling out hardware as the problem (unless somehow both my original MacBook and the replacement MacBook both have defective graphics), which leaves the software. I really hope somebody has a solution to this problem! The lag is intolerable, and definitely not acceptable for any product, let alone an Apple product.
