Hello Before you bash me. Why doesnt the new retina mbp have a native resolution option. Yes the icons would be small, put for people with good eyesight, it wouldnt be a problem. And looking at anandtech photos of windows 8 in native resolution. it looks ****ing awesome http://images.anandtech.com/doci/6008/DSC_7424.jpg http://www.anandtech.com/show/6008/windows-8-on-the-retina-display-macbook-pro "Even without a working NVIDIA driver, I was able to get a feel for what a 2880 x 1800 setting would look like on a traditional desktop under Windows 8. If you remember back to our scaling and display analysis articles, Apple doesn't offer a desktop resolution equivalent higher than 1920 x 1200 under OS X. The thinking being that unscaled 2880 x 1800 would just be too small for the desktop, icon text and default UI elements. The screenshot below shows the Windows 8 desktop at default (no DPI scaling) settings at 2880 x 1800:" "Note that the Skyfall trailer is actually a full 1920 x 1080 window. Text is indeed very small, but I suspect those with very good eyesight could actually be ok with this. I would love to see Apple actually expose a native resolution option under OS X."
