Snow Leopard and buying now 1,260 Views / 12 Replies

Thank you everyone for the replies.

I still can't make up my mind.

I went to the Apple store again. I pulled up Word on a 15" and a 17". I adjusted it so 7" of a page was viewable. The text on...

Thanks. I may go with a 17" MBP and scale the text in the word processing programs and web browsers. I can deal with the small font of the OS because the time spent looking at it is not much.

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking that the size of the screen may help more than the difference between glossy and matte.
