When Apple unveiled the 15.4 inch retina display Macbook Pro back a few weeks ago at WWDC 2012, Tim Cook bragged on the notebook’s 2880×1800 screen resolution, stating that it was the highest resolution on any notebook in the world. However, there’s something that Apple isn’t telling you about the new Retina Display MBP, and that’s that Apple doesn’t actually allow you to run your system at that full resolution.
What really happens is that Apple utilizes the extra pixels to show greater detail in the canvas, similar to what the company did with the retina display iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. By default, the screen resolution is 1440×900, but in System Preferences you can bump this up to 1920×1200.
But what if you really want to experience the full 2880×1800 screen resolution? Keep in mind that since the pixels are so small, text and other elements that are being displayed may be hard to see. But if you’re willing to give it a try, there are actually now several solutions to achieve the full resolution (although none are approved by Apple.)
