10.7: Enable HiDPI mode for higher resolution displays
Authored by: Lorphos on Nov 12, '11 12:43:06PM
Thanks for showing how to enable HiDPI mode. I tried this on a "retina" Viewsonic VP2290b monitor (a relabeled IBM T221, 22 inch TFT, 3840x2400 with 204dpi). All operating systems that I've used with this monitor have a huge problem if you connect a normal 100dpi monitor and this 204dpi behemoth.

The HiDPI solution of Mac OS X is great. I can use both monitors and the size of the text etc stays (approximately) the same, no matter which screen I use. But the text is still razor sharp on the 204dpi screen. Kudos to Apple. They found the best solution for working in an environment with both normal and quadruple resolution monitors.
