I agree that in the end it is certainly a matter of personal preference. However I feel that a lot of people buy into a WUXGA screen not knowing what they are getting themselves into. DELL sends out WUXGA systems configured with a DPI setting that is not fully supported by Windows - which makes text much more readable. Down the road the user will start noticing that certain applications and/or web pages have become problematic. Depending upon the user's technical knowledge they may not ever even suspect that the DPI setting is what is at the root of the problem. And if they do wind up setting the DPI back to 96, then they MAY be disappointed with text readablity.
It is certainly true that the majority of web pages / applications do OK at the higher DPI setting. However occaionally you will come across issues that are visually annoying. And you can also come across situations that render the applicaiton/web page almost unusable because of overlapping text, drop down boxes that are not readable, etc. Although this latter case is much more infrequent.
Hopefully all this will be a non-issue with the release of Longhorn.
