Late 2016 MBP: Upscaled or native resolution?

?

Do you use the new default upscaled resolution or have you gone back to the native res?

  1. Upscaled (New default)

    65.4%
  2. Native (Old default)

    34.6%

    On the 13, upscaled is 1440x900, native is 1280x800.
    On the 15, upscaled is 1680x1050, native is 1440x900.

    Unless it looks really bad, I'll probably use 1680x1050, to match my current machine.

    Nope, no lag at all, no stutter on any scrolling, maybe only on Facebook when the bottom content has not loaded.

    I have been using 1680x1050 or 1920x1200 on the 15" since 2012. The 2:1 scaling factor just doesn't offer enough real screen estate.

    The demo machine in the Apple Store near me has got some lag with the higher resolution… I'll test it with lower resolution tomorrow.
