Thanks for explaining so clearly how applications work with the Retina displays. I am delighted that you confirmed that TexShop will work fine with the Retina display.

This is interesting. I am old too...  but I wear no glasses although I was told recently that I a  cataract just started to develop in one of my eyes.  I also have a friend, even older than me, who claims not to see much difference between her old non-retina iPad and the retina one she now has. It would be interesting to hear from others on this forum having experience with the retina screens and stating their age groups (young, middle senior, down the hill...)

If it isn't too personal, are you Scot a young man? In your early 20s?

I have. But decided it was too big for my needs and far too expensive. I wish Apple had a 21" Thunderbolt display at a reasonable (for Apple) price. So I am now looking at other 21" models, if anyone can recommend one please write.

I think that I can live with this.
