    1440 X 900 is nice but I keep going back and forth between 1280 X 800 and 1400 X 900. I wonder how much better the battery life is with the default scaling?

    I ran mine at default for the first week, and have run it at 1440x900 since then. I prefer the extra real-estate, and really haven't noticed any impact on battery life.

    Is there any difference in clarity between the two resolutions? Also, has anyone tried the 1152x720(native) mode and did they notice if it's sharper under that?

    1536x960 (HiDPI). Looks great—good balance between real estate and sharpness.

    I found 1680x1050 HiDPI less crisp when it came to text, and I work with a lot of it, so it wasn't ideal.

    1440 x 900. Find it is a nice size for my eyes on the screen without sacrificing quality.

    1440x900, although it does seem slightly more stressful to watch at this resolution than a 13.3" at the same resolution.

    All of the resolutions seem equally crisp. I love using the 1152x720 at the end of the day when my eyes are tired.

    I start the day with 1440x900 but in the evening I change it to default/Standard.

    Played with it at an Apple retail store. 1440x900 seems to be the sweet spot for me. :)
