There's no 'of course' about it, there's no intrinsic reason vesa
shouldn't be capable of the native resolution, and if you file a bug on
this, ajax will look at it. When I did that for the Vaio P, he fixed the
vesa driver to automatically run the P at its native 1600x768

Of course, that won't make it faster. =)
