Fixed that for you. Your actual content has no 'correct size'.
Yes thank you, that's what I meant.

I'm now going to backup my data and return this MacBook Retina. I only bought it because of the 2880x1800 resolution.

First they take away our rights to make films, then freedom of 2880 resolution, next freedom of speech
What are you talking about? I'm on 10.8.2 and my display is at 2880x1800. I use quickres and there's no problem.

Any good reason why this is just not an option, the user can think for the self if it is too small or not.

As a result, windows and user interface elements appear to be the same relative size as on a 1440x900 15" display, but with four times the detail.
That was a very, very intelligent decision for them to make!

If I'd known they were going to do that, I might've been scheduling a replacement for my Macbook Pro.

OSX's lack of a Windows-like "Large Fonts" Option has plagued me ever since I switched to OSX.

My iMac is a 27" with a 2560x1440 native resolution, and I could really and truly use a "Large Fonts" option with it. If I drop down to 1920x1080 there is a visible and drastic reduction in detail that...well...just sucks.

People siiting close enough to read text at 2880x1800? The only think good this resolution would good for would be graphics, and watching moves.... That would be it.

If your gonna be doing allot of reading of documents in Office/Pages, highlighting cells etc in Numbers.., be prepared to see a doctor after.

On a 13" retina at 2560 x 1600 my numbers are 113 / 425.

The full 2880 resolution would look fantastic on a 17" Macbook Pro.
