The native resolution or C810 notebook is the XVGA 1600 X 1200.
 Everything is so tiny as to render it useless.  The remaining problem is
is that some websites (the whole webpage, not just the text) has shrunk to fit to less than half the screen.
To up DPI or not is the question. You could up it, which will cause most
things to be scaled up. However you'll probably notice at least a few minor
rendering flaws with Windows icons. The big issue is with IE6. In order to
get it to scale things up in response to the higher DPI setting, you'll have to
enable UseHR (google for words DPI and UseHR). However, IE6 doesn't
scale images very well and many will be horrible to look at. As a work
around for that you could abandon IE6 in favor of a browser that doesn't
have such limitations. IIRC Firefox worked OK in that scenario, and I
would hope that IE7 Beta 2 would as well. Not sure about others.
If you aren't happy with the upped DPI route, you could leave it at 96 and
use the tweaks you are using and switch to a browser that supports page
zoom. IE7 has such a feature, but I didn't play around with it. I believe
Firefox has support for increasing text size and setting minimum text size
for all pages. IIRC there are separate plugins which provide image scaling.
Perhaps you could rig something up so that all pages are zoomed so as to meet minimum size requirements. There is also Opera.
