Anyways whether it looks the same or not is irrelevant because the original discussion was that it will not make the images look better.

Okay you edited your post... now your argument is exactly the same as AKG's and I don't know why you were arguing in the first place. Clearly some misunderstandings.
Yeah, the MBP scaling does always make an image use 4 pixels, that's the point. If there's not enough space, then it won't fit on the screen.

The original discussion was me pointing out that it won't make images look worse - I've been clear from the start that it's not going to make images look better either - images will all look the same.
