Should the text size on the Macbook scare me?

    Currently, I am using my sisters laptop to type this. She has a 14.1" Dell with a resolution of 1440 x 900, and the font is on the small side. Since the Macbook's resolution is 1280 x 800 and only has a slightly smaller screen, maybe the font will be a bit larger? Also, is the text size on the Macbook the same on the Macbook Pro? Thanks :)

    You know your not stuck with small font's. All you have to do is ctrl + or - to increase or decrease the font size. You should see how large my fonts are for my sorry eyes. Also in Safari and Mail I added a button to the tool bar that has a small "a and a large A" which does the same thing.

    Not sure if your aware of this. Just trying to help out! Best of luck to ya! ;)

    Yeah, definitely an option on any MB, but not sure about your sister's PC. Previous poster ^^^ easily explains the situation. Enjoy your LARGE font size. :cool:

    Also remember that Mac OS X renders fonts differently compared to Windows. Fonts tend to appear with a heavier weight on Macs, which helps with clarity.
