Going to add this link for people curious about how the retina display operates on the MBP. From what I can tell, the OS can't see the retina resolution by default. The max you can do is 1920x1200, which is rendered @2x and then scaled down to fit the display, the same process works for other resolutions. In short, the "default resolution" on the mac is 1440x900, no different than the current mbp resolutions, it's just a lot crisper, but no gains in usable space. Games are a different though.
