    Question Hi-res vs regular glossy widescreen display
    Hi guys!
    I've just bought a brand new macbook pro 15". Unfortunately, there is no macbookpro left with HighResolution at the retail store, so I've bought the one with regular glossy widescreen display. My questions are,

    Is there a big difference between hi-res and the regular glossy? In your opinion, Is the regular glossy device bad?

    Thank you for answering :)

    Many folks, myself included, prefer the standard resolution glossy display over the hi-res display. The hi-res display gives you more pixels which is akin to expanding the screen view. The trade off with a hi-res 15" display is that everything is smaller. Not a problem if you have young eyes.
