Like the title says is the high res option really worth 100 dollars?
Absolutely if you have decent vision.
So things early look that much better or not?
More on screen real estate. Fonts are a tad smaller, but sharper.
every penny of it
Its worth it if you need the extra screen real estate and you have no problems reading the smaller text. I'm opting for the higher res when I order my MBP but you ask a question only you can answer
Its your money and only you will be able to discern whether its worth it. If you incur eye strain or cannot easily read the text on the screen then I'd say no its not worth it
Worth it. My 2008 MBP did not have HiRes and after switching, it's a beautiful feeling. Takes a bit to get used to it.
Also wouldn't mind 1920x1200 on a 15" MBP.
Yep, I agree. I wear glasses/contacts but the HR gives you much better screen real-estate space.
Make sure you are comfortable with small text, otherwise it will definitely not be worth it
Absolutely its worth it.
The extra real estate is greater for productivity.
As others have said, as long as it doesn't cause you eye strain then it's worth it. It's nice to have the extra screen real estate. It takes a little time to adjust to it, but going back to my old 2008 MBP with the regular screen looks weird to me now.
I prefer the standard resolution of my 13" MBP.
Obviously display resolution is subjective so it's best to see for yourself...
Wait, aren't you the one who's waiting for the 2013 model? How do you know there will be a High Res option and if there is that it will cost $100, and how are we supposed to know whether it will be worth the money?
No/i have changed my mind the 13" is to small as soon as the new models come out I will get the 15" and sell the 13"
Ah, ok. So you're looking at a 2012 model then? Or buying a 2011 model at a discount?
Can you use Acessibility settings to increase the type size, like on iPhone/iPads?? Otherwise, for those with sight impairment, this might be an issue.
I'd pay $200 for it. It's really worth it.
the 2012 model because the ivy bridge might run slightly cooler and I find the heat bait uncomfortable .
People saying it's only good if your eyesight can handle it - can't you just increase the size of everything so its sort of like a HiDPI mode?
I bought a 17-inch laptop last year (PC, I must add) and it was so big (and heavy) that it wasn't really a portable laptop. It became a nice desktop, in a laptop format. I replaced it with a 13-inch MBP and really like its size and how easy it is to take with me. I still have a 20-inch desktop for intense graphics use, but the MBP is great for everything else.
Man! If the new displays are supposed to have a high DPI, I wonder what the high-res upgrade will be like!
In that case, we don't know if there will be a high res option, how much it will cost, or whether it will be worth that cost.
Is there a technical reason for this, or does the OS just not offer it?
