New thread for new Macs as of 6/11/12

Not quite sure I know what to make of this from the Apple website, concerning MacBook Pro's retina display:

Supported resolutions: 2880 by 1800 pixels (Retina); scaled resolutions: 1920 by 1200, 1680 by 1050, 1280 by 800, and 1024 by 640 pixels

Previously we had "native" resolution, which was typically the displays maximum pixel counts, and then other resolutions which typically didn't look too good.

So, do we imagine that "scaled" resolutions will look good? Do we think that the OS will sometimes, automatically use "scaled" resolutions? For instance, at one point Tom Cook said that fonts are crisper than on a printed page - that could be because they're using more pixels to render a given font size than they used to, which would mean the screen resolutions they're touting aren't as easy to understand as we might think...
