Notebook/TFT screen resolutions

Maybe add that resolution (1400x1050) to the list of default resolutions
and add a note that TFTs are designed to run _one_ resolution.
That was the second time this issue came on debian-laptop within a week
i think. (the other one wanted to run 1024x768 on a 1600x1200 TFT)
But i'm not sure if they will read any such notice...
Maybe there is already one, i havn't checked ;)

You're right. After changing the resolution to 1400x1050, the blurring
problem disappeared.
