Some of us have been running ‘retina’ displays long before Apple dreamed of them, and here’s how you can too.
What you need
A monitor with a tiny dot pitch and large enough resolution (and size) and an inbuilt scaler. What this basically means is a monitor with a very high resolution, but where the text is pretty small when set to the native resolution. For example a 30″ Dell (native screen res of 2560 x 1600)
What you do
Simply set the scale options on the monitor to ‘aspect’, and set your computer to run it at 1920 x 1200.
What you get
A super smooth, super slick display. Which you can position at a comfortable viewing distance (like the back of your desk, not the middle where it’s right up to your nose!).Tags: apple, dell
