Faster than my quad core i7 hq with Nvidia graphics from 2012, as well as a better OS, wayyyy better battery life, and a stunning screen, as well as a way better keyboard, trackpad, and the touchbar and Touch ID is awesome.Also it's intel iris graphics, which is much better than intel hd. Faster RAM than any machine I've owned or built, and the fastest storage I have ever used (pic related). Also it's wireless connectivity is second to none.

Fonts are either optimized for screens or for print.

Mac optimizes for print, to cater to designers and publishers yes.
On lower dpi screens those fonts looks like ass, which is why Apple has always pushed for higher dpi screens.

you're not supposed to zoom in on screenshot images, you retard
if you want bigger text, use a larger font or higher DPI so the sub-pixel AA stays at sub-pixel level

I don't give shit about your vietnamese characters. the rendering on the right is much better, but as far as I can remember there were even better presets available because it's still far from perfect. can't say for sure because I haven't been on windows long enough to have to install it for half a decade

>> No.62323745

>I hate when fonts have this shit blue/red shift. Why do they do this?

It's called sub-pixel rendering.
It triples the horizontal resolution.
ie: 1920x1080 becomes 5760x1080.

>Why not use grays instead

That makes it blurry.

They do use some blurring in addition to sub-pixel rendering to make it even less jagged.
But you need less blur if you have higher resolution, and less blur means easier to read.

on high dpi screens, maybe. on 96dpi, you have multiple options that all suck more or less: make everything bold and blurry (mac style), make everything blurry (windows / linux no or light hinting), alter glyph shapes (linux full hinting) - which is the most readable, but pisses off font hipsters.

>> No.62324184

I'm on 96 dpi. most of the "MOMMY IT'S TOO BLURRY" is due to brain-damaging prolonged exposure to shitty windows rendering

which works well on 200+ dpi screens and 300+ dpi print, but causes eye bleed on 96 dpi. same reason why you don't use serif fonts (which are more readable by design) when targeting 96 dpi screen.
