I've got me one of these, and my native resolution is 1680x1050 (weird, 
no?).  Is 1200x800 your native resolution, or are you deliberately 
running it at a lower res?

The easiest check I can think of is to run it up at a higher resolution 
in your Fedora, or if you've got the bandwidth / CD to hand, boot into 
Ubuntu or Kubuntu live CDs (both Hoary, not Warty).  I know these (at 
least Kubuntu live) detected my native resolution and came up good.  If 
that sharpens things up for Fedora, maybe you can live with increasing 
the font size while running at a higher resolution.

No idea why Windows would look any better when running at the same 
resolution (assuming it's non-native resolution)
