Apple Apple makes the best consumer laptops. For me, there's absolutely no denying that this is the case. Apple has had this lead over the competition since the iBook G3 Dual USB 12.1" and 14", and has never lost it. Right now, the rumour mill is abuzz about Apple supposedly prepping to launch a MacBook Pro with a retina display - 2880x1800.

You don't need to increase the font size; a 12 point font should be displayed 12 points high.

Unless, of course, the software doesn't correctly handle display sizes and resolutions. Most older software fails at this, so something incorrectly labeled as 12 point is displayed at some unknown height.

For some reason, people like to blame the problem on displays instead of poorly designed software.

The solution isn't increasing the font size, it's getting the software to stop lying about the size.
