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?

Well, I had a very very sad job and to get a couple of web sites done and 30 magazines in a couple of months because that's the "organized and resourcefull way" of my last job... i had to use my iBook G4 1.33ghz with 512mb of ram with the following software running almost always at the same time:

Illustrator CS3

Photoshop Cs3 ( i tried NOT to use this one most of the time, but somethimes there is no way without it)

Dreamweaver CS3

In Design CS3

CODA 1.1 (for online editing)

Mail

Word

Excel

Safari

Firefox

Preview and Textedit (those count right?)

It was PAINFULLY slow and i had to reboot the computer about every 4 hours or so so it could take a break. But I managed to get the job done. I didn't see the light of day save for the times i was going to my work, but i finished.

So yeah, i belive you can have 150 apps running on a good computer and have a bearable speed to do something. That said, the no lag is Too good to be truth.
