    I had a 15" macbook pro, which I sold a few months ago. At "full resolution" on the screen, the type was readable but I usually knocked the resolution down a notch in system preferences so the text on screen was larger. Obviously I lost resolution by doing this.

    From what I have read here, the MBP using Retina has even smaller text on the screen in Retina this a correct assumption?

    If so, it's a deal killer for me. Why can't Apple develop resolution independence?

    Thanks for your input.

    No but rather the text which is the same size as before has more pixels so that the text looks even sharper.
