High-DPI LCDs go a long, long way to correct the crispness/scaling 
issues.  (With the added bonus of perfect geometry!)

On the "retina" macbooks, I can't discern individual pixels until my 
glasses are touching the screen.  My eyes just aren't good enough. Fonts 
are unbelievably crisp. Odd scaling factors are no longer bothersome.

As for external displays, Dell just started selling a 185 dpi 24".  I 
haven't gotten to try one of those yet.
