is there any way to increase the aspect ratio resolution netbook with intel GMA 3150 chipset from 1024x600 to be larger than 1280? I use Ubuntu Precise beta 2

Ok. I now have learned that the screen you have is manufactured to support a maximum of 1024 x 600 as resolution. It's physically impossible to force it to handle a higher resolution whatever the OS.
In another hand, to feel more comfortable, reduce the desktop font and launcher icon size. (Install Ubuntu Tweak for example: )

Ubuntu Tweak Font Settings

Ubuntu Tweak Unity Settings

And if you're not afraid to damage your screen, you can upscale its resolution to 1280 or even higher using the NewRez Script ( A script that uses the XRANDR utility for intel graphics). Download and instruction through here:
