Question for iMac users (late 2012):


I'm considering purchasing a 27 inch iMac. I was wondering whether there is a possibility for convenience of use to display say 1440 px on a 27 inch in a retina fashion. Meaning all 2500 px are used - for instance to display details of a photo, or edges of objects - but the entire UI is scaled down to mimic a desktop that is only 1440 px wide.


I know it's possible to do so on a MacBook pro with Retina Display - in display settings. But I don't know if it's possible on either a 21.5-inch or 27-inch iMac. Can any iMac (late 2012) user confirm this is possible?

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
