@cwebber but I would say that part of that is probably due to perceived speed being very very different then just like, raw processor speed. it's dependent on a lot of things like OS programming, cache size, workflow, amount of RAM, etc.
when you said "3x slower" my gut reaction was "you know the amount of times your macbook completely freezes up when trying to do some trivial task like alt-tab or open a new text file? what if those freezes took three times as long or happened three times as frequently"
@nightpool If it's any consolation, I think that high DPI displays aren't a concern in themselves (but the amount of processing necessary to display to them might be, dunno).
@cwebber my understanding is that there's some complicated performance cost for the thing I'm doing, which is configuring a high DPI display with a non-integer scaling factor. I dunno though.
