So I like many of you have been indulged over the last few years in pixel heaven with iPhones, iPads and now MacBooks and even iMacs all coming with stunning high PPI screens. There is no question that when you sit in front of a screen that doesn't have a PPI to qualify as a retina screen, it is glaringly noticeable. I bought myself a new 2014 MacBook Air 11-inch on eBay the other day which should be with me on Tuesday, and the one thing that is bugging me big time is the screen and the fact that it is not a retina screen. I actually owned an 11-Inch MBA a 2-3 years ago (which I sold a few months later for lack of use),?this was at a time when I think only my iPhone 4 or 5 was the only device that had a retina screen, my 17-inch MBP (oh how I miss that laptop ) and Hackintosh display being standard PPI. But now, my iPhone 6, iPad Air and rMBP are all retina and my Hackintosh desktop rarely gets used, so when I use the MBA, it is going to be hugely noticeable. I had absolutely no I interest in buying another MBA until that damn rMB was announced, and it was then I realised how much I wanted an ultra portable laptop once again, regardless of how much usage it would get. But when they announced the pricing for the new rMB, over £1000 for the base model? Well that ruled that one out immediately. And so I managed to pick up a new, sealed 2014 MBA 11-inch for £540, nearly half the price, but with half a screen too! Now I fully expect the screen clarity, especially on text, to be no where near as good as a retina screen, but to those who use the model MBA I have ordered and who use other retina screens, is it hard adjusting back to the "old ways" of looking at a screen? I have read conflicting reviews and comments, some saying the screen is the worst Apple notebook screen ever to those saying it's the best. I was also reading this article: http://www.cultofmac.com/168509/why...ion-of-those-new-retina-display-macs-feature/ In this article it says, and I a paraphrasing, that the MBA is already around 87% qualified as a retina screen, based on some calculations. I also believe that as noticeable as it will be when initially using the MBA after using a retina screen, eventually the eyes wi adjust and it won't really be an issue after ten minutes. Thoughts? Ps. I am still really buzzing about getting the MBA by the way I know this sounds like I am saying I think it'll be crap before I've even got it in my hands.
