    Quickres is a pretty cool app, especially when used on a rMBP. Even on the current 11" and 13" MBA models, it allows for 1920 x 1080 resolution.

    Does it also work on the current 13" uMBP to give a higher resolution? It did not on my buddy's early 2011 13" uMBP and I was wondering if possibly it was due to an older HD 3000 graphics chip.

    Anyhow, if someone can test it on a current 2012 13" uMBP (non-retina) and let me know the max resolutions it gives beyond 1200 x 800, I'd appreciate it!

    The non retina 13" MBP max resolution is 1200x800.

    Are you referring to what the max in in the Quickres app on that machine I am asking about? Or just the specs of the machine that I described in the original post?

    I mean, the 13" MBA has a max resolution of 1440x900, but the Quickres app allows for higher. Here's a screen shot. I'm not connected to a monitor, this is using the actual laptop screen.

    They get squeezed a bit (blurred slightly), but not terrible when you want/need more on a screen.

    It installs, you can enable HiDPI and after a reboot it gives you the options as seen in the attached screen shot. Neither is of much use to me, but they do function.

    Thank you so much for checking! I know the 1920x1080 will be letterboxed and small, but could be handy in a few rare cases.

    So they must be doing some sort of reverse scaling then? Because the pixels in that mac is only limited.
