MacBook Pro :: Larger Font Size On External Monitor?

Jul 11, 2010

I'm looking to purchase an external monitor (24" @ 1920x1080) for my MacBook Pro (13.3" @ 1280x800) but want the fonts to be larger on the external monitor (eyes aren't what they used to be). The MBP13 has about 113 pixels/inch whereas the monitor has about 92 pixels/inch so I believe the fonts will indeed be larger. Can anyone with a similar setup confirm this or offer any other useful info.

MacBook Pro :: Font Size On 17 Is Too Small - How Can I Increase The Font Size

Jun 4, 2010

I'm trying to increase the font size of my mac, but I can't find it anywhere. I should be really simple to do so I'm probably missing something. On windows you just right click the desktop > appearance and bang. How can I do it on the mac? Oh and I don't want to increase the font of safari or finder, i already know how to do that, what I'm looking for is a way to make all fonts bigger (including menus)... just like you do on windows, make all fonts 1.2 times bigger.

MacBook Pro :: Tiny Screen Size And Larger Bezel

Sep 3, 2009

So I was in the Apple Store again yesterday and whilst looking around the different versions of the notebooks it suddenly struck me that, with all things considered, the 13" Macbook Pro isn't really a 'Pro'. It doesn't look or feel very Pro-like especially when you consider the lower spec, tiny screen size, and larger bezel. It really strikes home when you see all the 13", 15", and 17" laid out side-by-side on display. I really think by upgrading the 13" name to 'Macbook Pro' Apple are doing a grave injustice to all the customers who could afford and purchased the real Pros'.

MacBook Pro :: TrackPad Changes Size Of Font

Dec 10, 2010

I just got a new MacBook Pro 15" and am still trying to get used to the one piece trackpad. (My old MacBook had a separate button). The main irritation is that, depending on how I move my fingers, I inadvertantly change the size of the webpage and font. I'm not even sure what I am doing to cause this, but is there a way to "lock" the trackpad so this does not happen?

Power Mac G5 :: Upgrading Hard Drive To Larger Size?

Dec 15, 2007

I have a power mac G5 2.7 that is 2.5 years old. It came configured with two 400GB drives inside as it will only hold two. I now really want to change them out to either two 750 GB or preferably two 1TB drives. Apple, however, has told me it won't work and that my unit will not handle this huge additional power consumption. I have called mac mall and they say no way as well. OWC says they have many working like that and its never been a problem. Then I called Apple again and they said it will work fine. I have 6 more months of Apple care, but either way do not want to blow the interior of this system up. I know I need SATA drives and would ideally like to purchase the Hitachi Deskstar 7K1000.

MacBook Pro :: Trying To Get An Idea Of Font Size On A Hi-res 15" MBP?

Apr 30, 2010

If you have a 1440 x 900 15" MBP and you reduce the screen to 80% in Firefox or Safari I think it's very close to the font size you'll find standard on the hi-res screens.

Then to get an idea whether or not you're pleased with the font size try using your notebook at this setting for a few days.

My initial experience with the small fonts on the hi-res screens in the area's were the fonts couldn't easily be resized I didn't like it at all the first few hours I typed on it -then- I started to like it, the fonts are smaller but sharp and crisp I was getting sold on the idea of the hi-res screens. Finally, after a few days using the laptop for long periods of time I found my eyes where "much" more strained, not because I couldn't enlarge the fonts on the page I was typing on it was everything else; menu text etc ... glancing and refocusing to view the smaller fonts became tiring on the eyes, making them feel dry/heavy.

I then went back to the 1440 x 900 screen and the eye strain disappeared. I wanted to buy and like the hi-res screen, but not doable for me.

This post was meant to help anyone who's trying to decide what to do but isn't near an Apple Store to take a look for themselves.

The above font size should also be similar.

*** Keeping in mind it will look more sharp and crisp on the hi-res display.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Scrolling Results In Font Size Change

Apr 25, 2010

I have a new macbook pro. Scrolling, i.e. 2-finger, on the trackpad often, but randomly, results in font size changes (e.g. in Safari, mail, etc.); in word and powerpoint it often changes a word or paragraph to subscript or superscript. This also happens often with cursor movement on the trackpad, i.e. single finger sweeps. It appears that trackpad usage is randomly triggering command+ or command-.

Software :: Larger Monitor NonMac For Photo & Video Edition?

May 26, 2010

I am a photography/film student at college, and I have a 13.3 MacBook OSX 10.4.11. I'm looking to buy a large (or larger, around the 24'' inch area, more or less) LCD monitor with around a $400 limit. I will primarily be using Adobe Programs like Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, etc., and I thought this would be the best place to ask for advice as to what monitors might be best for my needs.You see, I have absolutely no idea what to look for (I know that a high resolution and correct calibration is a must), but the primary function that I will be using this monitor for is editing photography and video.
