    I was looking at the Apple site for the 15-inch MacBook Pro and noticed that, apparently, they don't offer the 1440 by 900 resolution anymore (previously the "best for retina"), only the following:
    • Supported scaled resolutions:
      • 1920 by 1200
      • 1680 by 1050
      • 1280 by 800
      • 1024 by 640
    Anyone can confirm this? Seems awfully strange…

    Its still available, but the default is 1680x1050. But the 1440-900 is still an option.

    Wait what? Does that mean that the display now has 3360 x 2100 physical pixels?

    No, they just changed the default resolution.

    You can revert to the old one without issues, but the scaled one actually looks very much "native". I prefer it to the old one.

    With the introduction of the Touch Bar models they changed the default resolutions of the MacBooks. The 13" models now are default scaled at 1440x900 and the 15" is on 1680x1050.

    I'm glad Apple left the 1440 by 900 resolution it really helps those who are presbyopia.
