Coverflow: Blurry and text too small

The idea of the ability to show folders in coverflow is very cool. However, the reality on my Macbook Unibody is that the windows are out of focus and then when you land on a page it takes a minute for the thing to sharpen. I find this very annoying. Also, I find the text blindingly small. Is this a glitch with coverflow or is this something about my setup?

I was also disappointed by the length of time it takes a CoverFlow image to come into sharp focus, but assumed it was because I lack a true graphics processing chip in my ModBook.

But I’ve seen a similar report from a user with a fast Mac Pro.

Switching to Full Screen view provides a larger image on my 13.4-inch screen. But of course one cannot see more than the beginning of a long document.
