I just bought a brand new 13.3" MacBook Pro; 4GB ram, i5 processor, just the basic setup. AutoCAD 2013 works fine for OSX. However, when I am in Windows 7 (Bootcamp), and I am trying to run AutCAD Architecture 2013 the cursor is very choppy, lags, and is just extremely slow. I haven't played around with it enough to experience a crash or anything yet. Is this a driver issue? Does anyone know of any new driver updates for the MacBook Pro? I need this to work in 3 weeks for my senior year of engineering. So any help or suggestions would be appreciated!! Thanks.

Only inside the graphics-area of ACA or also within the menue-area of ACA or also on the desktop-area of Win7?
For AutoCAD you can try to toggle the hardware-acceleration, try to play with sysvars like ROLLOVERTIPS, SELECTIONCYCLING (and others to be found with search criteria "AutoCAD performance").

I appreciate the response. I literally just now toggled hardware acceleration on, right before I read your post. That was funny. Anyway, that helped it quite a bit. It was only in the graphics-area, not the menus.
The performance tuner says there is an update for the graphics card and such, but fails to download it. Will this help if I get that downloaded do you think? Thanks again.
>> Will this help if I get that downloaded
Sorry that I can't say yes or no to that question as I'm not a MAC-man and don't know anything about the apples
Anyway, I would also try the sysvars I mentioned before (and the ones you'll find with the searching for "AutoCAD performance").
