From what I've been told, you can still disable HiDPI mode entirely and run the display at native resolution via Quartz Debug options still. HOWEVER, doing so is PRETTY crazy, as things become WAY too small.

What's more interesting is that if you set the display options "Scaling" mode to "More Space", it actually renders a 3840 x 2400 screen with GUI elements rendered in HiDPI (2x) mode... which is then scaled down to 2880 x 1800... giving something that is definitely has more effective real estate than a native resolution 1680 x 1050 display. (I tested the scaling via a full-screen screenshot that came from a Retina MBP 15" onto my MBP 15" display.)
