i am a apple fan and let me tell you, being an apple user is actually a great thing. we have beautiful products and we have ugly products. just like any company. tim cook for 1 is a great person, makes great products, and takes care of every one that is in his customer base and is glad to do it, and for that he has people that love him around him. also, apple products are one of the best profucts you can have. sometimes they can be really restricted, but they will take care of you no matter what, and the genius bar will help you buy what ever it is that you need. as long as your not a selfish ****head. Also, we all have great jobs, lots of money and an online community that we all love and helps us eat shit out of our hands.

I have to use a retina macbook at work and hate that fucking scaling shit. Holy fuck, the max scaling is 1920x1200 which I had in 2008. Plus OS X wastes a ridiculous amount of space with the stupid fucking dock and top bar and maximize never works.

Plus the scaling software is buggy as fuck going from external monitors and back, constantly causing problems. Honestly you'd be 2 times better off with a 1200p screen screen, but at the time you had to choose between blurry 1280x800 and glitchy as fuck retina.

Is it kinda funny to see idiots using the default scaling. Like they paid $1000 just to use "retina display" with 2x pixel density just to have their images blown up 2x defeating the entire purpose. You literally pay $1000+ just so you icons looks slightly better. It would be funny if I wasn't forced to use it everyday.

first off, the icons look great. secondly, the point of a "retina display" about not getting eye strain from staring at noticeable pixels all day. it's about having nice things.

yes, i cant go back to a normal display now, shit just looks weak

>>51399027
>I have to use a retina macbook at work and hate that fucking scaling shit. Holy fuck, the max scaling is 1920x1200 which I had in 2008.
Then set it to 2560x1600/2880x1800. Not that hard.

>OS X wastes a ridiculous amount of space with the stupid fucking dock and top bar
Hide them. It's not like they're needed most of the time.

>maximize never works.
Why would you need to maximize something without full screening it? Are you one of those retards who has three monitors showing one window each?

The rest of your post is legit though.

two finger tap, goyim. 2 finger drag scrolls

3 fingers for drag-select

4 fingers left/right to move desktops

and now force touch...

Nah you're wrong bro every modern laptop can right click with a two finger tap

>>51399087
I've noticed that people with more than two screens tend to not even know what a workspace is. Seriously go look at some of the shit people have up on their extra monitors. It's all completely useless stuff like their torrent client, music player, etc. as if you need that stuff visible 24/7.

You mean dragging in general.

Are you seriously trying to say that most modern laptops don't have a two finger tap for right click? Even my fucking HP Mini 311 had that.

Its a 2014 model with a 2gb gt 750m and i7. Somehow the PoS still manages to run dog ass slow compared to my nehalem desktop from 2009.

>>51399055

But the retina isn't nice. Its fucking terrible. I hate it. I'd rather use a 1920x1200 screen any day of the week than put up with the god awful scaling software.

>>51399062

Haha what? Have you used one? You can't pick the resolution, only different "scaling" settings. You can hack it to be native res sure, but its unusable buggy and breaks a lot of the UI.

Read about it yourself you fucking moron:
https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202471

You can't pick the resolution. The highest scaled resolution is 1920x1200 equivalent. Which means all images are downscaled at an uneven ratio. Even at the highest scaled resolution the retina display will look worse than a native 1920x1200 display, except for OS icons. Even if you hack it at full resolution the OS is tiny as fuck because it wasn't designed with that in mind.
>>
>>51399204

Now you can choose only one.
>>
>>51399231
So how did I take my screenshot here >>51399215
then?
Just because Apple doesn't give you a GUI to change certain things around doesn't mean it's impossible or even hard to change.
>>
>>51399231
Your link doesn't even work. Keep trying hard, fâm.
>>
>>51399256

do you even read my post? yeah you can do it, but its unusable because the ui doesn't scale. It essentially acts as if its display on a 30''+ display. The UI elements are too small to use at 15''', not like windows which scaled up the ui elements correctly.
>>
>>51399285
So you're complaining that the UI scales, but you're also complaining that there isn't enough work area?
You realize the bigger your workarea the smaller your stuff gets right? If you don't have shitty eyes you can read the stuff just fine at native res.

>>51399245

The scaling doesn't work to begin with lol.

Leaving the 1200p screen in would make the 15'' macbook 10 times better and less of a complete fucking nightmare to have to use every day. That said, the software in general is bad, but the retina scaling is one of the worse aspects.

Literally retarded. You can set it to native res without any issues whatsoever (although I doubt anybody would ever want that). Why should it anyway? That makes no sense. Try a little harder next time you make up arguments to shit on things you irrationally hate.
>>
>>51399231
Hold cmd key and click "scaled"

Congratulations. You can now choose pixel resolutions
>>
>>51399231
I like how people like you assume things they obviously never actually tried. Why should a scaled resolution look less sharp? It's literally just oversampled. Sure, the UI elements are not adjusted pixel perfectly, but you just don't notice that at all.
>>
>>51399285
The UI does scale, which you're complaining about.

Then you're also complaining about the UI not scaling when you turn off scaling.

Are you retarded?
