This has been hammered to death online. But I can't seem to figure out the answer to this question. Why can't you just get the hi resolution 15in and set it to 1440x900 if you want larger text. Does it have something to do with native resolution? Also I remotely connect to Linux servers and the text is already very small when running the remote desktop. Will this be even smaller with the hi res? Is there a way to avoid this? I currently use a 1440x900 and don't know if I should stick with what I have as it works or get the new hi res. I do very minimal photo editing and rarely look at video and the like. Mainly I work with statistical programs and will benefit from being able to see a larger data set with the hi res. I'm most concerned with the 1st question. No apple store person has been able to answer it yet.
