Yes, this is an issue, and there's no good answer for it. Changing resolutions on an LCD to anything other than the native resolution is going to make things blurry, as on-screen pixels are stretched across actual hardware pixels.

Oddly, things are slightly larger on-screen with the 21.5" iMac than the 27" iMac, since the resolution on the 27" iMac is larger out of proportion with the actual screen size. But not by much.

Many apps (including all web browsers, and almost all word processors) have a "zoom" function that zooms a page with minimum blurring. Usually that's in the View menu somewhere. But that only works within the one app.
