The 971P is one which is more likely to satisfy your need for color than others.
At something other than native resolution, some settings are not too bad, others illegible.... you'll just have to try. Better, however, is to run at native and adjust the font. You can make nearly all of the text larger as you wish... except things like toolbars.
It won't be long before all CRTs are history... you might as well get prepared.
