That's right. That is why the retina display would cost more. The macbook pro is definitely much better machine than the Air, in terms of display, ram and processor. If the Pro is within your budget, go with it.kwcllf wrote:This is what I have read. MacBook Air resolution is not as good as MacBook Pro.

Checked with a student when I went to buy uniform, she say most of them use MacBook Pro 13".
If students uses the laptop often, a high resolution screen will not be so tiring to the eyes. Viewing angle for the Pro is also much better.
For me, I'm using a normal old Dell laptop with lower resolution for my work and I can spent hours staring at the screen. I feel the Air with the same resolution is adequate.
