    I was wondering whether a full blown HD movie on the new retina MBP will look ok due to its upscaling?

    Has anyone done this and can confirm it looks ok?

    I assume it may look potentially bad if your running at the native 2880 resolution?

    i am also interested in this, im downloading a 1080p movie right now, however it will take some time maybe 5 hours xD (sorry i have slow internet). However maybe a forum member who owns a retina macbook pro will know about this...

    I've heard tell that it looks absolutely stunning.

    With pixels of that size upscaling artifacts are not likely to become noticeable. It should't look any worse than a 1080p video on a native 1080p screen.
