Laptop Screen Resolutions

I might be getting a new laptop at work and was wondering if anyone had any experience with Dell Latitude D620. Are they any good? Linux compatibility is generally very good with Dell, right? The graphics card is a NVIDIA Quadro NVS 110M 256MB.

Is 1280×800 too small for a 14.1″ widescreen? Currently, I have a 15.4″ screen with 1680×1050 pixels and I must say I struggle too often to see the text on screen. I know I can increase the font size, but that makes the text huge when I plug the laptop into the regular 19″ (1080×1024) LCD screen at work. Which resolution is best for a 14.1″ widescreen, 1280×800 or 1440×900? I know both resolutions have larger pixels than my current screen, but is 14.1″@1440×900 going to render the text almost as tiny as the 15.4″@1680×1050 screen?
