Photoshop: CS5 toolbar icons tiny...

I have a 17" mac book pro and I find that when I use photoshop I have to lean forwards to see what Icon I am hitting when selecting say the paintbrush tool.

Everything else is fine, menu titles etc its just the toolbar on the workspace. I get that they are made a certain size to minimize impact on the work space, but its annoying when I have to be careful to click the right thing because the icon is so small I sometimes accidentally select something else. Out of curiosity is this issue fixed in CS6? Or is there a way to change the icon size in other versions of CS? Perhaps a patch?

I can't find anyway way other than changing the resolution of my screen, but what is the point in having a high def screen if you change the screen res to something that makes text, icons look blurry.

I use a 17" mac book pro, and don't have that problem - it's not a high resolution screen (like the new retina displays), and it's the same size toolbar Photoshop has had for many years.

No, it is not changed in CS6 and there is no patch.

We are working on changes for the retina displays, but are waiting on displays to be delivered (like everyone else).

Do you have the display set to something other than the native LCD resolution? That's the only way I could make the UI tiny on the 17" laptop.
