Probably an EeePC 7" where running a "normal" desktop is completely
absurd. I don't think that any other distros are making particular
changes to make that easier.

Things like disabling the text in toolbars, or selecting smaller fonts
would certainly help.

But, really, 800x480?! That's even smaller than the 800x600 that people
try not to break.
