Thats right, up until about 5 days ago I've been rocking an old white late 2007 Macbook running 10.6.8. I've just upgraded to a MBA and I have plenty-o questions for you guys. In advance I thank you for you input cause I do have an issue to deal with that Im sure you guys could help with. ~~ My old 2007 macbook is a 2.2ghz core 2 which I upgraded to 4GB of ram a few years ago to extend its life. The computer has been giving me the pinwheel of death for a long time and I just dealt with it waiting till I got a new one. Here's where the problems start.... I got a brand new 13inch 1.6ghz i5 256GB MBA with upgraded 8gbs of RAM. When it came I noticed that I had 10.10 and frankly, I could not deal with it at all. The flatness of it, along with what I thought was tiny system fonts really depressed me. I had used a 10.9 from time to time and liked the feel of that so tried to get the new one installed with 10.9 (I never remember the names of the OSX). Since it was a new one, the genius people said 10.9 wasn't possible and the only way was to find an older one that had 10.9 installed at some point. By my luck, I found a mid-2013 13inch 1.7ghz i7 256GB with the 8gbs I wanted at that exact moment on the refurb site. I ordered and waited till it came to make sure it could run 10.9. The genius installed it and I returned the 2015 model (I am not certain it was 2015 model or 2014 as I think new ones were just put out. This was literally a 1.5-2 weeks ago.) So now Im working on the 2013 and it still hasn't looked right to me. I keep thinking its the fonts. Have dropped the res to a lower setting and while that increases things the fonts turn fuzzy. I just learned the hard way that the Appearance set font size option in my old 10.6 isn't an option with these new OS. After some discussion with AppleCare and trying to find a work around, I came to the conclusion that while the fonts are small (and the ability to change them from app to app or across the whole system is, to put it very kindly, limited (Control+ is not a solution - its a workaround)), the problem might lie with the actual screen. It seems like this model has a glossy screen which is causing fits with my eyes and my head. I've looked around this site and have seen many people discuss this issue and the preference for a matte screen but those discussions were on the MBP. I'm waiting for an power support anti-glare screen to ship to test that with the 2013MBA. My question, is it possible to get a non-glossy and/or a matte MBA or MBP either through the refurb or new? I don't seem to find them on the site. Am I wasting my time searching for one that will have the specs I want or at least the ability to upgrade the RAM I want? Im sort of out of sorts on what to do with this computer. If there is a better MAC option out there, I'd probably take it. I'd hate to have this one with the glossy screen and in a month or two apple releases a better looking non-glossy/matte screens. I can't shell out the cost for two macs. What I get needs to last a min of 3 years. Im hoping to get to a store in the next day or two to see whats available there in terms of a better screen mac. But I don't see the fuss for the retina at the cost difference. (one positive of this is that I found out that the specs on this 2013 refurb are pretty in tune with the new MBAs so if a new OSX comes out that gives more user functionality in terms of font size system wide and app to app, this MBA should be able to handle the upgrades for at least a few generations.) apologies for the long post, and thanks for any input you may have. much appreciated. ------------------------------------ I absolutely love my old 2007 Macbook. And OS X 10.6 was/is superb. I wish I could have 10.6 on this new sooped up MBA. But the screen... its burning my eyes!
