How the fonts look? Uh, they look exactly the same. I have an iMac and could just limit the amount of screenshot space to 1440 by 900 (the 13" resolution) and it would yield the same result.

What are you trying to accomplish?

I just would like to see how webpages looks on macbook air :) I am afraid fonts may be too small for me.

I think I know what he is after...I have a work computer (Lenovo, unfortunately) that has a 14" 1440x900 display, and the fonts on every program suck, like fonts usually do on Windows.

The Mac handling of fonts is much better, and I wouldn't be as worried by 1440x900 on a 13" MBA. My 2009 MBA is 1280x800, and the font size is great for me, no feeling of cramped-ness.

I'd definitely recommend seeing one in person, and not relying on a screenshot, IMO.

the displayed size of text will depend on both the resolution AND the physical size of the screen, so i think you'd have to look at one of these screenshots on a 13.3" screen to have an accurate comparison.

as for fonts in OSX vs Windows, font smoothing in OSX makes text prettier perhaps, but also makes it quite fuzzy and hard to read; (it's decent on a high res MBA screen, but pretty bad on a 13 MBP.) Windows font smoothing may look jagged, but is very crisp and readable. personally, i think Windows made the right choice.

Yeah I would take 1280x800 on Macbook Air in a hearbeat. Unfortunately they don't make them anymore. 1440x900 is just too high for my eyes and seems way too thin.
