    Crispy screen resolution

    When one changes the screen resolution in a retina iMac, will all resolutions look as crispy as the standard? On my mid 2010 iMac, which isn’t retina, only one resolution will look as crispy!

    Why is there no scaling in OS X for high res monitors?

    I recently had to return a 25" Dell U2518D monitor with a native resolution of 2560x1440 after having a hard time trying to work on it (text was too small). But WHY is it that high res screens have no way of adjusting the UI without changing the resolution? Windows does this perfectly fine on...
