    I have 15 inch macbook pro 2011 high res-anti glare and
    i feel text are little bit small
    I can read them but if i want to read a full web-page from Wikipedia i would feel hard on my eyes unless i use cmd+

    13.3 MBA resolution is 1440 by 900 same resolution as standard 15 screen

    MBA users how do you feel??? cuz your screen is a high res screen

    Text is sometimes a tad small for me... but... not sure that's actually a problem. You mentioned the solution... either pinch on the trackpad to zoom in, or use Command-+. The benefits of a high resolution screen are enormous.

    Resolution and MS Office 2011

    On my 13", I find I have to make all documents 150 percent to get them true size and readable. Of course, when saved, others have this huge document on their native screens once they receive it from me.

    Is there a workaround? If we reduce the resolution, it fixes this but then the resolution is brutal. I know this has been an issue for many users, but can't Apple create a fix for this? 100 percent should be 100 percent in terms of page sizing in any native resolution for an 11", 13", or 15".

    Doesn't Mac Os have custom text size/windows/icons management?
    I use a 12.1 inch notebook and custom - 140% all over the OS works perfect for me on Win 7.

    Doesn't Lion introduce resolution independence for text? That should help things. Either way, I can't wait for the the increased dpi of the MBA from my MBP.

    OS X has huge fischer price sized fonts. I'd love the Sony Vaio Z's 1920x1080 on my 13" MBA. More pixels!
