    I'm going to be sharing my new MBPR with my wife (as we did the 13" MBP) and we generally have our own logins so that web-surfing, etc., doesn't conflict.

    As I am a resolution whore, I'd be keen to run the MBPR at native res (if possible - and I believe this is, albeit via hacks right now) but I know my wife will prefer bigger text.

    My question is: is the resolution set on a system-wide basis or on a per-user basis? Can anyone confirm for me?

    I think since its controlled via system preferences it will be the same as before

    One of the two hacks in question won't work for you, as it disables HiDPI entirely, system-wide, I believe. (The Quartz Debug hack).

    The other hack involves SwitchResX, and might work?
