Whoa! Running my Macbook Air at more than 1440x900 with Retina DisplayMenu!

    13" Macbook Air 2013 on El Capitan 10.11.1 here.

    This just blew my mind...Retina DisplayMenu actually allows one to change a resolution on a Macbook Air all the way up to 2560x1600!

    Granted, the higher from 1440x900 you go, the blurier things get - 20/20 vision required! - and it's useless for photo/video editing/hardcore reading anyway, but for the odd occasion when I need more desktop real estate for spreadsheets, this trick will neatly bridge me over until the rMB catches up in CPU speed.

    :cool:

    Yep, did this when I had a 13" MBA, ran at 1920x1200 for a bit, it's surprisingly a lot more readable than I thought.

    Nice try, but not really.

    With default scaling settings, rMBP 13" (doubled 1280x800) actually has LESS screen real estate than MBA (1440x900).
