On reflection, I think what has happened here is that you (or someone) "blew up the screen" on your older machine (changed the resolution to a lower resolution). Now that you've changed systems, of course, the new OS reverts to the "native" (true) resolution of the display. You should be able to set it back to the way you like it using the "display" preference in System Preferences.

I do have to add (out of collegial concern) that if you're in your 20s and find the native resolution of any computer to be very difficult to read/irritating, this could indicate an eyesight issue and I hope you will make sure that isn't the real problem (I'm probably wrong, but I'd hate to be right).
