looks like the good folks over at primatelabs updated geekbench to support HighDPI/HighPPI displays

samsung posted thier firmware and a tool to fix it today

realy quick guide, might not work :P
start with a root terminal

adduser node
su node
unzip && cd ghost-0.5.2
npm install && npm install pm2
node_modules/pm2/bin/pm2 start index.js --name Ghost
node_modules/pm2/bin/pm2 list (to show if ghost is running)

Living with a High PPI display is kinda annoying
Yes the resolution is sweet but the software looks like a blurrymess

case in point, Geekbench Left is 13.3"(1920x1080) HighPPi/DPi
Right is 24"(1920x1200) LowPPi/DPi

luckly i got this from the developer
"Thanks for the heads up. We’ll make sure Geekbench is DPI-aware in an upcoming release."

HWinfo is also getting better DPI-Awareness in their upcoming builds

Yes and No
After some research and testing on both asus and samsung laptop, i think i have found a simple solution
First you have to have to modify the ei.cfg file in install media

Found this nice backup image software, thats pretty simple if you read the docs

First you have to image the drive
parted -l (find your harddrive /dev path)
safecopy -stage1 /dev/yourdrive hddimage.img
safecopy -stage2 /dev/yourdrive hddimage.img (if stage1 has errors)
safecopy -stage3 /dev/yourdrive hddimage.img (if stage2 has errors)

now you can mount it
parted hddimage.img
unit b
write down the start number of the parition you want to mount
Now change START to the number you write down earlier to mount that partition
Dont forget to remove the B
mount -o loop,ro,offset=START hddimage.img /mnt/rabbit
