[Gizmodo] Mac With 150 Apps Running Shows Teeny-Weeny Dock, Exposé Windows

Ever wondered what Mac Dock and Exposé look like with 150 apps running? Well, wonder no more, friend. Wonder no more. Rest assured, however, everything gets ludicrously tiny. Now, we're not too sure who'd be using 150 apps simultaneously, except for maybe that dude at the end of The Matrix who manages to confuse the crap out of everyone. Damn, he sure was crazy. Anyway, the sight is quite impressive nonetheless, so jump in for a screen shot.

The Mac in question is a 2.2GHz MBP with an undisclosed amount of RAM installed. The user, Flickr member burnflare92, stated no slowdown was detected at all. I find that a little hard to believe, as mine lags a bit with a mere 20-plus apps running, even if it is a 2.16Ghz, 2GB RAM MBP. What do you guys reckon: is zero lag with 150 apps running total BS?

Haha "undisclosed amount of ram installed" I laughed at that. There HAS to be some lag with that amount of apps running.

I've saw that on flickr, except I thought I remembered the guy saying he selected all in his apps folder by accident and clicked, causing them all to open, and stated he got tons of lag. But I dont remember clearly, so I may be wrong.

This is why the mac rocks! My macbook pro 2.2Ghz was working smoothly even after opening all the Applications in the application folder and utilities folder. There are about more than 150 Applications open right now in expose.

4GB ram

All the apps were launched at the same time. Not one-by-one

Only a Maccie would do something like this, and on top of it have the nerve to claim that OSX is so supercalifragilistic that he couldn't even tell a difference.

My bosses dual Quad Xeon with 8Gb of ram is an awesome machine, but even that beast can experience a slowdown with 30+ apps running.

Not uncommon for a laptop to run at those temps. My P4 Northwood hits the low 80's under load, and I don't even wanna think what a Prescott chip in a laptop hits.

If I put my Core 2 Duo back to stock clocks (2.2Ghz), and added 2GB of RAM on top of my current 2GB of RAM I'm sure I would easily be able to do the same thing.

But the question is: Why would someone want to?

Oh wait, Its because their an Apple fanboy.
