One difference that immediately jumps out is that in your 1024
snapshot rgba rendering is on, but in the 1280 snap it is off.

The stems in the 1280 snap are all more than one pixel wide,
unlike the 1024 snap (except for the bold fonts, of course).

Is the link between the box and the TFT digital or analogue?
Are the two boxen running the same os/dist?

A DVI vs VGA link to the TFT is probably only remotely at
issue for Xft quality.  But a different freetype install
may be.  Each os and dist does their own thing with the
bytecode interpreter in freetype.

It may be the case that bytecode interpreter is not compiled
in on the TFT box.  It appears to be used on the notebook.

I'd start by turning on RGBA on the TFT box, and then confirming
whether the interpreter is enabled.
