On an LCD, any approximative resolution will blur

When in SXGA+ (1400x1050, ratio 4/3), have you 2 vertical black lanes right and left of the screen? Are alphabetical characters
crisp as well, or only "Things
The ACER TravelMate 8100 series
has a 15.4" WSXGA+
screen (SXGA+ with the width stretched so to reach the 16/10 ratio), hence 1680x1050
LCD screens need the software pixels displayed on them match exactly
the hardware pixels built in the material screen; if you change them just a little, the display will get blurred. The impairment will not be this badly apparent in images of analog nature, as photos of persons or lanscapes, with colors progressively changing accross pixels; it will be very apparent in images where colors change suddenly and completely, as alphabetical and numerical characters, or drawings with black and white (without gray scales) or few colors.
So since your screen is materially
built with WSXGA+ resolution (1680x1050), you should use it only with that resolution if you want to see crisp text on it. If you use SXGA+ (1400x1050) spread on the whole screen
, it should look blurred; if it doesn't, then probably the SXGA+ image is displayed on a reduced part of your screen - hence my question above.
Of course you could also cover the screen with an exact proportion of the native WSXGA+ resolution, but the smallest entire division you can do is by 2, leading to 840x525, which is already very small and never used AFAIK. But any approximation
of the good resolution will make you fall in the same sort of blurring.
