I got a 13″ Retina MacBook Pro about a month and a half ago. I am not impressed and here’s why. This first screenshot is of a full screen Chrome window using the Retina resolution.
Yes, it’s beautiful. There is no arguing that. But I’m not blind and I have to scroll before even seeing any content. Lot’s of scrolling at this resolution. Here you can see the Display settings.
I switched over to a scaled resolution (no longer Retina) for more space.
Voila! I no longer feel like there’s a magnifying glass attached to my face and I don’t have to scroll nearly as much as with Retina. Guess what, it still looks beautiful.
Many people love their Retina MacBook Pro. I wish I had gotten a MacBook Air instead.
