'RandR' is the X server's dynamic reconfiguration system. It lets you change 
the display settings while the server is running. By disabling it, you are 
pretty much saying "I'm not going to need to change the number of displays, 
the resolution, or the rotation." As far as I know, there are no downsides to 
enabling RandR (setting it to "true") as far as performance or stability are 
concerned, so I recommend you set it to "true".
