Re: No Compiz Panic!!
The unity dash is still incredibly sluggish on my older laptop (intel ironlake graphics) The compiz effects like scale, wall, cube etc... have always been smooth for me, its just the dash thats terrible.
On my newer ivybridge laptop compiz/unity runs totally smooth on both 12.10 and 13.04 though.
