One thing I noticed with my Mac, is that when you're recording screencasts and audio at the same time the CPU goes bonkers. If you're doing some resource-intensive tasks on top of that (like using IDEs or running virtual machines) your machine can struggle..

The situation has improved for me since when I am using an external audio recorder. Looks like audio processing takes a lot of CPU. If you record live screencasts with OSB, using an external audio recorder like the Zoom H1n or similar might help and give you a little bit of headroom.
