So im deciding to upgrade from a MBA 11" (Late 2010) model to a MBPr 13" as I really need some extra screen space and processing power. What attracts me about the MBPr is the fact i can run a resolution of 1680x1050. What i would like to know is, and i've been trying to find the answers for hours... 1. Will I have performance issues running at 1680x1050 all the time? Scrolling? Switching apps and between desktop spaces? 2. Will fonts and apps look sharp in quality? or will i get blurry and fuzzy issues? 3. If issue 2 is a problem using Apple 1680x1050 mode, if i use 1680x1050 HiDPI using something like "Retina DisplayMenu" ****************W6xPgM will this fix any issue with the appearance of apps? I've been reading the following tying to get my answers...
