ibook 12.1" screen size too small - adjustable font?

Hello all,

Total mac newbie here, looking at buying a used ibook 12.1" 1.2GHz PowerPc G4 processor, 512 MB DDR SDRAM. Its running Mac OS X 10.4.11.

For those using a 12.1" screen, do you find it hard to see? Will I be able to adjust the font size? Looking for any and all advice....thanks!!!!!

It's only 1024x768, so I'm pretty sure it actually has larger pixels than today's MacBook Pros i.e. it should be easy to read.
