    Hi guys!

    Looking at the shop, Retina MacBook Pro fonts looks less thick than the Non-Retina.

    Since there are 3 (or 4) options to change the font thickness in OS X I was wondering which one is the default one for Retina MBP? Maybe someone could make some screenshots to see the optical differences? Also which one do you prefer most on Retina screen?

    Thank you ;)



    To change font thickness write in Terminal:



    Light

    Code:
    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 1




    Medium

    Code:
    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2



    Hard

    Code:
    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 3


    (probably without sub-pixel rendering):

    Code:
    defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 4

    You can just disable font smoothing in Preferences if you have a Retina screen.
