    Hi, i bought the late 2012 macbook pro with retina display and have been using it for months but there is one thing i recently noticed when i was checking see how much storage i had left. i went into the display tab of about this mac and it said my display resolution was 2880 x 1800 but the resolution of the 13 inch retina pro was 2560x1600 so my question is do all 13 inch retina pros say this or is it something thats wrong with mine ?

    I noticed this, its because you have your device scaled to render everything at 2880x1800 - which looks like the size of 1440x960 on the screen. If you set it back to 'best for retina' and restart your machine it'll go back to 2560...

    Nothing to worry about.
