I am planning to buy a T500, and I am struggling between the
"Bad resolution WXGA " OR the "tiny fonts WSXGA+" ......
I would definitely go for the WSXGA+ if I knew that I can successfully
(and consitently) change the size of the fonts in XP.
I looked at:
Althogh I am afraid that there might be some items that may stay too small independently of what one can do!
And perhaps there are ITEMS that cannot be rescaled! (???)
I had a bad experience some years ago with my desktop:
after changing the size of the fonts all over, everything looked fine but I had troble filling out forms in Firefox:
I could only see the top half part of whatever I was typing
(not a good feature to have when you are buying something.... )

Using bigger fonts usually works very much ok with at least semi-modern programs. There are only a very few programs where you run into the old problems of overflowing dialogs and stuff like that.
I'm running the WSXGA+ screen with large fonts (WinXP) and it works perfectly fine.
