Okay, if you've read through all my posts you can tell I'm all caught up on whether or not to get the Glossy Hi Res or Standard 15in MBP. I've gathered all the Pro's and Cons and wanted to list them and see if anybody had anything to add. Pros for Hi Res - Higher pixel's = crisper images and font's - More screen space - Once you go Hi Res you don't go back Cons for Hi Res - Images and font look smaller - Can cause eye strain - $100 more expensive Pros for Standard - Font and images are larger - Doesn't cause eye strain - $100 cheaper Cons for Standard - Not as much screen space - Fonts don't look as crisp - Hard to look at after using Hi Res screen Those are my main topics. I've gone back and forth over 100 times this week. I'm 21 and have good eye sight, but my eyes do get tired looking at my current 1280x800 screen. So I can only image 1660x1050 would be a little more straining. But if my eyes could get used to Hi Res I would definitely do it. I just don't want my eyes to be affected. When I decided I wanted Standard I realized even though the font is bigger it didn't look as crisp. I think it didn't look as crisp because Mac uses a different font than Windows. All I know is I don't care about "more screen space", but I care about overall quality while keeping my eyes happy. Sorry for the long post but all the responses of "HI RES ALL THE WAY' doesn't really explain WHY (with reasons other than "it's obviously better") its better. Edit - I ended up going with Standard and I'm very happy.
