    Is there a way to use higher res on retina macbook pro... i think i read that the computer doesn't come with option of using the full resolution of 2880-by-1800.... you need a workaround to do that... but is there also a way to get 1920 by 1200, 1680 by 1050?

    The two resolutions you mentioned are both supported by OSX in the Retina models.

    Yes, go into Display preferences and use a scaling mode.

    With what Apple gives you in options
    you have HiDPI scaled resolutions of...
    "Best for Retina" (aka looks like 1440x900)
    Looks like 1024x640
    Looks like 1280x800
    Looks like 1680x1050
    Looks like 1920x1200

    Using RDM you have... (in Mountain Lion, a few options are missing in Lion)
    HiDPI scaled resolutions of...
    1920x1200
    1680x1050
    1440x900
    1440x810
    1280x800
    1280x720
    1024x640
    960x600
    960x540
    840x525
    720x450
    Then you also have standard resolutions of...

    3360x2100 (scales down)
    2880x1800
    2880x1620
    2560x1600
    2560x1440
    2048x1280
    1920x1200
    1920x1080
    1680x1050
