So here was me thinking I had good eyesight and that I needed a retina display on the macbook pro.. First time I logged in I thought "hmmm..this default resolution sucks" so switched it to the high res. in preferences...blimey..the text was so small I panicked and thought I'd just aged 10 years... I've now balanced it by setting it to 1440x900 until I can get some glasses from ebay lol. What do you think??
