I would like to somehow change the resolution on my OSX Asus eee 1005HA to 1024 x 768 or similar. The purpose is so that I can see the entire window (specifically in Garage Band and iPhoto, there may be other programs as well that do this) and thus have full control.

My other solution is to attach an external monitor but then when I am in a coffee shop I can't access the bottom of the window.

Any solution that does not take a genius or computer Guru. I stretched by ability as a computer guy simply by tri-booting XP, Win 7 and Mac on this puppy.

Any solutions?
