    Would really thankful if someone could do me a huge favour and post a couple of screenshots of a website (maybe the verge or even MR) with the following resolutions with and without HiDPI (using a program like SwitchResX or something)

    1440
    1680
    1920

    So all in all, 6 screenshots.
    I know this is probably a pain, so thanks in advance.

    Well, the non-HiDPI versions would just look like normal 1440x900, 1680x1050, and 1920x1200 screenshots of OSX.

    Here are some screenshots of the HiDPI modes from Anandtech:

    God, those look absolutely amazing on my 1280x800 13" screen. Cannot wait to have a hold of a MBP(R) myself!

    I was told if you use the non-HiDPI with SwitchResX it would look pretty blurry and very different from a classic macbook pro at those resolutions (bar 1920 since afaik the cMBP doesn't do that res)..

    But you can't see that in a software screenshot. Someone will have to take actual photos of the screen to show how that looks on the display itself.
