Anyone use the retina MBP in the scaled modes of 1680x1050 or 1920x1200 for photo editing in lightroom and photoshop?

How does the image look? And the performance?

I have a 3.0GHz 13" rMBP that I use for Lightroom and Final Cut Pro. This is my first Mac in 20 years, and I can say without hesitation that it is the best laptop I have ever used.

I use the screen in the top resolution (1680x1050). I notice NO pixelization or fuzziness. I can honestly say that I cannot tell that it is a non-native resolution.

For fun, I have also tried the "screen native" mode of 2560x1600 via QuickRes. Works great, but too small to be actually usable. 1680x1050 is perfect.

Performance is great, look is great. What more could you ask for?
