Do you feel that the font of macbook air looks too small to see? And the font is very fuzzy. but the font of rMBP looks so clear!

Of course the Retina looks clear compared to the Air, it's >double the resolution.

You can't really compare the two. If the Air bothers you get the Retina!

There's lots of ways to increase or zoom "most" but not all font sizes that appear in different apps & on the web. I'm fortunate to have 20/20 vision, I work for hours on my 13" MBA no problem.

Overall it's such a nice laptop I'd encourage you to remember there's a return period which facilitates your ability to try one. Apple has in my opinion the finest customer service & ease of returns of any company.

Buy one & try it. There's a good chance that within a few days of usage you'll adjust & really enjoy it. :)
