When you use 1680x1050 do you do pixel level retouching, like working on an image with 300% magnification? Is there no blurry or fuziness? Also, how is the performance at the scaled resolution with the Intel 4000?

Yes - I've gone as high as 11:1 (1100%). I do most of my work at 1:1, but go to 3:1 or 4:1 if I need to get in close. Never noticed any issues with performance related to graphics. However, I use LR almost exclusively so I'm not doing true "pixel level" work. I wouldn't say things are instantaneous (what in life is?), but they are sufficient for my needs. All this in an easily-portable package? For <$2K? I'll take it!
