Mouse Lag

Mac Technical Support
So, I've been getting mouse lag for quite a long time. (9-10 months?) It hasn't bothered me until Pandaria hit, and now it's worse than ever. I'll move the mouse and it won't respond for like half a second and then just jolt across the screen. This also happens when I try to look around with right click. I checked my memory; still had 1 gig left of memory. This also happens when WoW is running and I'm just surfing the web. However, this does not happen with any other games I have such as Counter Strike: Source, Team Fortress 2, Runes of Magic, Runescape, etc. Here's all the stuff I think you guys need :D Thanks for any help :D

Hello. I am having the exact same problem when using Warcraft. At times this issue makes the game unplayable. Please advise. Thank you.

Yep. Same problem here. Mouse freezes for a half second - no movement, no ability to click. Happens a few times per minute.
have you guys tried turning on the 'hardware cursor' option in the settings?
