I thought the VGA screen was going to be a real improvement, but despite being great in terms of quality, it seems to make very poor use of the resolution. Even with the text size set to smallest the top bar and bottom context bar take up the same percentage of screen as my Mini-S. Given I used the device mostly in landscape mode (ie. clam shell) the start menu actually had LESS vertical real-estate than my Mini-S does!
Is there any way to change this so it keeps the same resolution as my Mini-S does? IE. it doesn't scale everything to twice the size?
