Hi, I'm looking to buy a 16:10 20 inch monitor. Is there any different in picture and text clarity between VGA and display port at this exact resolution: 1440 X 900, in regards to text quality when browsing online and also typing documents, and also video picture quality. (Just to add, I've tried several 20-21 INCH full HD monitors at this size and the text is blurred when browsing online, so no need to mention higher resolution monitors, just at this resolution, thanks)

VGA Supports up to 2048x1536.  If the native resolution of the monitor is not 1440x900 that could cause the blurry text.

 

LCD panels are best viewed at their native resolution.  Changing the resolution higher or lower will result in a less than optimal experience.  At native resolution the monitor is displaying one pixel in one pixel.  If you change the resolution it has to try and show an image where one pixel no longer displays one pixel.   If the resolution is lower it has to use multiple pixels to show one pixel and this causes distortion, or blurriness.

1440 x 900 is the native resolution. I know display port is a lot better at full hd 1920 x 1080 and where the native resolutions are above this. I just wanted to know if there will also be an improvement where the monitor has a lower native resolution of 1400 x 900 and if there is a difference between display port and vga at this 1400 x 900 native resolution.

The only way to see would be to test it.  VGA should handle that resolution with no issues, but that doesn't mean that something in your VGA chain is causing it to not display as well as it could.  Updating video drivers could also help.
