I got 100.6 DPI for the calculations I did for 15"
15 * (16/(sqrt(16^2+10^2))) = 12.72
15 * (10/(sqrt(16^2+10^2))) = 7.95
1280 / 12.72 = 100.63 dpi
800 / 7.95 = 100.63 dpi
However most 15" laptops that I have seen are actually 15.4" so:
15.4 * (16/(sqrt(16^2+10^2))) = 13.06
15.4 * (10/(sqrt(16^2+10^2))) = 8.16
1280 / 13.06 = 98.01 dpi
800 / 8.16 = 98.04 dpi
However, both are very close to 96 dpi so you should notice almost no
change in font size.
