Laptop screens aren't like CRTs - They're generally only made to show one
resolution: Some laptops [my thinkpad, for example] can 'magnify' a smaller
resolution up to the optimal one, but you always get artifacts or blurring
when you do this. Others simply use a smaller area in the middle of the
screen to display lower resolutions.

There's an old proverb that says just about whatever you want it to.
