Default Windows 7 DPI scaling, how good is it?

Thinking of buying either a 1280x800 or a 1680x1050 15.4" screen on a Lenovo T500 laptop. When I'm at home I need 1280x800 since I'm a bit away from the screen but for example on a train 1680x1050 would be better since I then would be closer to the screen.

So my question, how good is the DPI scaling in Windows 7? Can I by using the scaling function (not XP style scaling) be able to make the 1680x1050 screen look like a 1280x800 screen?
