Also, if you are running a distrubution with KDE4, there is  'laptop' theme 
that minimises decorations and gives you the greates possible display space.  
Oddly enough, I find that I can reduce the fonts and still read with much 
greater comfort than I would have expected at that size.

All these help, but you do still need the Alt+grab and move a window, 
sometimes.
