    Just curious. WHat's your screen resolution setting ?

    I'm going back and forth between the two "More Space" ones... haven't made up my mind yet, I will probably need to get a full day of development in before I do. But it will be between these two.

    Can you please post what the scaled resolutions are? As you scroll over each, it should say something like "Looks like 1920x1080". Thanks!

    Larger Text - 1600x900
    2048x1152
    Best (Retina) - 2560x1440
    2880x1620
    More Space - 3200x1800

    But these are a bit misleading (I read a few posts here from people who don't get what Retina means and Apple are clearly using a few marketing shortcuts in the riMac's promotion). I'm using the 3200x1800 one and a 5120x3200 image doesn't cover all the screen.

    It's not that misleading. It's what the screen is reporting as. Basically the same as scaling any other LCD that only has one actual native resolution. (Except better, because it has enough pixel density to not suck horribly while doing it.)
