For those of you fortunate enough to have a MacBook Pro with Retina Display, I'd be curious as to what resolution do you use?

Do you use the default (optimized) resolution, or do you scale it up? (1680x1050 or 1920x1200)?

I'm on a 15", but I think that's a slightly higher than default resolution, yes?

I use the default resolution. I do like the higher resolutions, but things are a little too small.

Thanks for the feedback. I've been bouncing between the default resolution, and one up from there depending on what I'm doing. My eyes tend to appreciate the default more, but larger spreadsheets are nicer at times with more space.

I did use a 3rd party tool to switch the resolution to "native". Very impressive, but you need binoculars to read the text.
