That's not the point. I know it scales better. The point is that you don't benefit from the extra workspace the resolution gives you because the UI elements would have to be bigger so you don't squint at the screen.

It's nighttime and I'm bored, so I'm just ranting. Not being a hater or anything, just giving my 2cents.gif

No, but you have the added bonus of not going blind looking at non scaled text and images on a 2560x1440 13'' screen. Just an upside I thought might be worth considering.

That is my point.... my point is that yes, you have to scale the text up so you don't go blind. Assuming that you scale it up to a point where it doesn't strain your eyes, you would lose a lot of workspace which ruins the whole point of having a higher res. My other point was that on a 13" screen, there really isn't a noticeable difference in sharpness from 1080p to 1600p, if the 1800p on a 15" screen is any indicator. While some people may have super vision and claim they can see the difference, I find that to be a placebo :/ I mean really? >< Like I stated in my first post in this thread, I have 20/20/15 vision and even if I really try, I find it difficult to find the extra sharpness in the retina display over any 1080p 13" display. Once again, just my 2cents.gif

The workspace argument is mostly a moot point. The "Retina" display is only useful for the eyecandy. Crisper images, etc. Nothing more than a money-making scheme for a majority of mac users; but for some; OSX + Sexy screen = heaven lol.

I know you're not being a hater haha. It's almost 3 am here ... probably a good time to leave OCN since I have to be up in 3 hours ...

The point of the retina is a sharper image not necessarily more workspace on a smaller screen.

I'm really doubting they could do it without an Nvidia GPU. The 15" goes into Nvidia mode any time you do anything video related. if they didn't have it in the 13" any "pro" apps would suffer from not having it.

I hope they dont airize it like the 15" MBPr

13" chassis is already a good balance between expandability and weight.
Yeah I was hoping for that too, but it would be tricky fitting a decent GPU inside of it.

You can't use an external graphics card on the internal display though, only an external display but yes it could do that I think.

That was under Lion, it's much smoother under Mountain Lion which leverages Core Graphics for rendering webpages, and I think it was using the iGPU too not the GT 650M. Also I believe a part of the difficulty is that it was running at a resolution greater than 2560x1600 which the GT 650M doesn't support -- so Apple had to add some kind of driver or manual way of handling the higher resolution which is 2880x1800 or as high as 3840x2400 if you choose the option with the most workspace.

At 2560x1600 (1280x800) the HD 4000 graphics should be just fine. I don't think they'll offer any higher resolution options, but if they do it would be at most 1440x900 which is 2880x1800.

There's a hack to use the whole native resolution. Otherwise you can use a 1920x1200 workspace which is still incredibly smooth and not pixelated.
