It appears the screen size on the Asus 701ee is 800x480?  That seems
like a reasonable resolution to expect Fedora to work without *horrible*
UI problems.  Especially given that it's not a hypothetical need; you're
actually running into problems on a system that people might reasonably
run Fedora on.  (And small screens have undergone something of a
renaissance, so it's good if Fedora could be a bit more flexible - who
knows what will be coming out next year.)

I guess the thing to do next is file a bug against Anaconda and ask that
it run at this resolution without the need for "secret" keypress.
