    I seem to recall that the middle choice under "Display" in the Display Pref Pane for my retina iMac was "Best" or "Best (retina) or something.

    Now, under scaled, I get "Default."

    Did something change?

    I think they changed it to avoid confusion in understanding resolution(s) and the retina imac.

    The ' default ' resolution is 2560 x 1440 as it also was under "best for '.

    Best For (10.10.1 ) and Default ( 10.10.2 ) are the same.

    Thanks; makes sense. I was telling new riMac users how to choose "best" and then I started getting a lot of "huhs?" Apple needs to clear their naming conventions with me if they want me to continue to provide tech support... :)
