    CS:GO plays fantastically on this machine, but Steam games appear to only properly see the non-Retina native resolution (1440 x 900). Any higher looks the same, but increases the work the GPU has to do.

    Anyway, I play CS:GO with everything maxed out and at 1440 x 900 and it looks and runs beautifully.

    EDIT: Forgot to mention that it usually stays at 60 fps (vertical sync on).
