Yes, if that's the type of screen the laptop has... I have a Dell
Inspiron 8100 with a 1600x1200 screen, and that's its actual
resolution--no scaling or scrolling.

Well, assuming you have things configured correctly, a 10 point font is
a 10 point font (i.e., the physical size is the same), no matter what
your screen resolution is. It just uses more pixels to make it, so it
looks a lot nicer :) (1600x1200 on a 15" screen works out to be about
133dpi, vs. about 96dpi for most CRT displays).
