System Preferences->Displays


Or if you don't want to change screen reso.. you could always look into System Preferences->Accessibility under Zoom.

Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible with software available out there. Although you could theoretically do the same trick as Retina MacBooks, it would look horrible because of the interpolation and lack of pixel density.

You'll have to resort to hidden toolbars and smaller text sizes.
