If you posted on this forum out of genuine desire to help, you'll live with flames, some bad PMs (private messages), being ignored, etc.
If you posted to boost your ego (i.e. expected being praised and thanked), look for a different place to get that.
On topic. It is indeed recommended to use LCD at its native resolution whenever possible. Exceptions are full-screen games and movies.
Acer TM810x also has technology (GridVista) that allows to emulate multiple monitors on a single LCD: each monitor will not have "native" resolution (or rather size) of LCD. Another workaround is when you have virtual desktop that is larger than LCD (it may have a weird resolution too) and is scrollable, that way you may even run widescreen on a 4:3 LCD. Don't remember if ATI Hydravision does that or was it some other software.
