I seem to get massive variation in how long it takes me to get into games with relation to the game timer. Usually I get in within 10 seconds of the game starting, however sometimes I don't get in until 45 seconds, 1:30, even as long as 4 minutes into the game. All of this is while I'm at the summoning screen. I also get terrible fps for the first twenty seconds or so once I get in (this I've always assumed was the laptop switching to the more powerful graphics card). It seems random; I've tried testing by going into custom games right before I queue for PVP, but there doesn't seem to be any consistency. Thanks for any help.

My computer is

MacBookPro 15in 2010
OSX 10.8.3
2.4Ghz Intel Core i5
4GB 1067 MHz DDR3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M (with the built-in Intel HD graphics)

Hrm. Can you try manually forcing your computer to use the discrete video for a while, and see if you still encounter this issue?
