I was just wondering if was possible to make the display look non-retina.
yep, just set to it 2800 x 1800 with one of the apps made for this and prepare to sit close to the screen...
Why would you want to make the display not appear to be a retina display?
I have no idea what you even mean by it?
Just curious, even though it's none of my business...
Why do you want to turn Retina off and have the display look non-Retina?
more working space? less processing? i know if you put it at 1920x1200. its actually doing double the work going 3840x2400.
i used to have it at 1920x 1200, but i found that the regular "best for retina" setting was the best.
It's not a feature. You can't just turn it off if more battery life is what you're seeking. The best you can do is increase the resolution to get more usable working space.
SetResX - looks like a shifty site but the application's golden. Lets you run a rMBP at 2880x1800 along with a good number of non-Retina resolutions by disabling scaling.
While I don't often use resolutions other than 2880x1800, which is what I use most, I find that animations seem smoother and battery life increases slightly when the Retina scaling is disabled. Nothing hugely dramatic, though.
Thank you for taking the time to answer my question.
