OS X Yosemite designed with Retina screens in mind?

Macworld’s Jason Snell, after spending some time hands on with OS X Yosemite, has declared that he thinks that the operating system was designed with Retina Screens in mind – exciting – considering that we’re still sitting here patiently waiting for the MacBook Air’s to be graced with the power of Retina.


From the Sauce:


“For a while now, I’ve thought that 2014 would be the year that Retina spreads across the Mac product line. After spending time with Yosemite on both Retina and non-Retina systems, I’m more confident than ever in that guess. Yosemite’s new design feels like it was built for Retina displays: Thin Helvetica Neue replaces the long-serving but chunky Lucida Grande as the system typeface.”


The general consensus is that a Retina macbook air will be released later this year to coincide with the public release of Yosemite. Yay!
