17 Inches of Big Pixels

I’m using my old 17″ PowerBook G4 while my MacBook is in the shop, and I must say I’m enjoying it. The screen is obviously much bigger, but the pixels are larger as well (less dense) which makes things larger on the screen and easier to read, etc.1

I find myself less slumped/hunched over peering in at the screen than I do with the smaller MacBook screen/pixels.

I wonder if using a current 15″ or 17″ MacBook Pro (since they have the smaller pixels) would be more similar to my MacBook experience or my PowerBook experience.
