Dual booting a MBP with Retina display
This thread is totally speculation, but what do people think of the ability to dual-boot a retina-display MBP into Windows? I have read articles that a retina screen actually reports the original resolution to the OS, and also that OS X implements a HiDPI feature to support these screens. Do we have any proof that Windows will be able to work with a resolution-doubled screen?
Or do we think that dual-booting into Windows was just a nice-to-have anyways, so Apple could theoretically not support bootcamp/dual-boot in the 2012 MBP?
I personally am still interested in a 3360x2100 MBP, but also want to be able to play games under boot camp.

I'm sure Apple has thought of something already.

One solution would be some kind of interpolation mode in the video drivers to make each pixel reported by the OS into 4 pixels displayed on the screen (assuming the end resolution is 4x something standard).
