Re: 2015 MacBook = 1152 by 720 screen real estate?
On my wife's 15" retina MacBook the native resolution is 2880 by 1800 pixels (Retina), but when you run in optimal retina mode, the vertical pixels is only 900. Everything just looks sharper. If you run at 1800 everything on the screen is so tiny, you can't see anything. I bet it is the same on the new MacBook, essentially giving it a vertical resolution of only 720 pixels. No doubt everything looks great, but you just don't see much of it on the screen at any given moment. It is so weird the way Apple does its scaling.
