Only if you see a full screen option on it. Is this a notebook or a NETbook? Some of the netbooks have a small scren but at pretty high resolution, may make it hard to see some things.
Are the buttons actually on the screen or do they seem to be hiden past the window boundry? If you can see them but they are too small for you, try to decrease the resolution on the display, you won't fit as much ont he screen, but what's there will be bigger.
