    So, how small will the text/font size be on the top of the line MBP Retina 15.4" screen?

    Anyone have a real example or mocked-up comparison I can see???


    This is the only thing stopping me from completing my purchase.

    It will be the same as the regular 15" MacBook pro, just twice as crisp.

    Yes, by default everything will be exactly the same size as on the 1440x900 screen, just sharper.

    You can also choose to make things smaller if you wish to fit more on screen:

    The scaled resolutions would make things on the screen larger, so that less would fit on the screen, not more. That's how resolution scaling works. So what you posted is not evidence of that the fonts will be just as large as they re on current 1440x900 screens, although it might still be the case.

    Can you post a link with evidence of this?

    Also look at the Retina Display comparison on the Macbook Pro page:

    The UI is the exact same physical size on both notebooks.
