Laptop screen size
Authored by: osxpounder on Jul 09, '12 09:16:43PM

For me, 17" is great. 15" maybe. Smaller? Not likely.

After squinting at an iPad, I realize that the easy zooming in most Mac apps has been a huge part of the appeal of OS X for me since way back when. I hate, hate, hate browsing or writing on iPads because I can't make the text bigger. I love being able to easily make the text bigger or smaller on my Macs.

I pretty much stopped buying iTunes stuff because I can get the same stuff at Amazon, where I can zoom the text to suit me while I'm shopping. I don't use the App Store any more than absolutely necessary for the same reason. Can't understand why the text zooming features aren't in those shopping apps.

Have you seen Ableton Live's clean, zoomable interface? I LOVE it. More apps should emulate that.
