    I realize that the MBP has a greater screen resolution than the MB, but how does the pixel size compare. For instance will the text on a Word document on a MB appear to be the same as the identical document on the MBP (assuming the both are set to their native resolution)?

    I would guess that they're probably the same size, the MBP just has more of them.

    I imagine the DPI on the MacBook is *slightly* higher than on the MacBook Pro.

    I'm too lazy to do the math, but you can if you want. Look up the screen dimensions and find the density of the pixels packed in there.

    Looks like ~109.08ppi vs 105.98ppi... not a big difference assuming an exact 16:10 ratio. I think they are advertised at 113dpi vs 110dpi, though...
