The one thing my laptop doesn't do well, is display text large enough for me to actually read. The "native" screen resolution is 1920x1200 -- on a 17" display. I use Window's "Large Fonts" and that works in most apps at least somewhat. Sometimes buttons are skewed or dialog boxes don't fit -- but mostly it's great. The high res with larger text makes works look like they're printed on paper.
Products like Skype, Trillian, and that ilk suck though. I haven't found a skin for trillian that fixes the problem and creating a skin is a nightmare of effort. So far as I can tell, Skype ignores all the settings and displays fonts however it wants. GRRRrrrr.
What I'd like is a driver or software tool of some kind that acts with the video driver to change the scale.
Actually works about 99% of the way to perfect so far as I can tell. Trillian and Skype, Notes, Explorer, Office, etc... are all very useable and I've shut down XP's "Large Fonts" and the other mods I've made to the environment to try to compensate.
