I'm curious which screen resolutions people are using when not connected to an external monitor.

Does it have to do with readability of text? Do you use a non-scaled resolution for the performance benefit?

I like running at 1680x1050, but I sometimes use 1920x1200 as well.

I ran mine at native/non-scaled, as I do now with my 13" rMBP. I'm fine with the amount of screen space it provides.

It comes with 1440x900.
1080p is way too small for me on a 15" so I prefer 1440x900, or if I need more room to work I switch to 1680x1050.

I change it depending on what I am doing.

Native resolution for movies, word processing, day to day activities. Higher resolution when working on excel, xcode, iMovie/photos, where screen real estate makes a difference.

Seriously I thought it came with 1920x1200 by default native Resolution.

Without scaling its 2880x1800. I run that resolution sometimes when I'm away from external monitors coding because I can run Xcode and a browser window for reference and see most of both side by side.
