    Please let me know. This is truly the deciding factor between the 13-inch and the 15-inch for me. I used both at the Apple Store and I noticed the words on the 15-inch were kind of small.

    I had a problem reading text cause it looked fuzzy but after applying the color profile for my LCD, it is perfect now. The colors and text are clear and awesome.

    Better look again. the 13" is 113 ppi and the 15" is 110 ppi. Means things are smaller on the 13".

    Personally, I think everything is too big on those two and the 17" is the only decent resolution, but maybe that's just me.

    Is that free? Color Profile?


    And wouldnt the higher resolution on the 15-inch make things smaller

    Text on MBP 15 is perfectly fine for me. I also own a white MB. The text is a bit smaller on it.

    Just what I was going to post. The MBP 13-inch made me squint like crazy.

    Yep its free. Just do a search on the forum with your LCD Model and you'll find one that someone has put together.

    I'm the kind of person who would rather have a 1440x900 on a 13" and a 1920x1200 on a 15". (Or even the 2048×1536 on the 15" like the R51 :D).

    not necessarily. it's pixel density that matters, not resolution.

    I am an older man, with bad eyes .... many times need reading glasses.

    The 15" is actually quite pleasant for me to use WITHOUT glasses.

    I may have trouble from time to time, but it's related to specific sites and their choice of font/size/color.

    I use the zoom features on browsers quite liberally, but I do that on all computers. Websites suck at picking proper font sizes.
