    Two LCD monitors, one a 15-inch using its native 1024x768 resolution, and the other a 17-inch using its native 1280x1024 resolution. Which one would have the bigger icons, text, and images? If I were to take a ruler and measure the same desktop icons or webpage images on the two different monitors, which would have the larger stuff (in other words, easier on my aging eyes). Thank you all.

    I have found that usually the lower the res. number the larger the icons and text should be. The higher the number the clearer the image or text but a smaller size. The 15 inch will be larger.

    I just tested on my monitor and my granddaughters is where I got the 15 inch would be bigger. But you can use the 17 and use the lower setting and the icons and text get pretty big
