Yes, I think my native resolution is 1280x800, and it makes things a lot clearer. I love it..... BUT, whenever I close the lid it goes back to 1024x768, and that really, really annoys me, because I close my lid a lot. I don't know how to make it stay, I'd love if I could find a way because the 1024x768 makes things blurry on my computer screen, urgh.
Yeah, both my 12" Powerbook and 14" Acer are 1024x768...it's really annoying how nothing will fit that resolution anymore.1680 and above fullscreen is far too much for most apps in my opinion. I always end up using rather small windows to keep down mouse and eye movement. And 1024 is definately not standard any more. I'm stuck with it though on my 12" laptop.
At least vimperator gets quite a lot of space out of that.
