You really need to remove the 72 dpi number out of your brain. Apples 20" widescreen monitor has about 98.5 dpi. A quick look at the Dell site and a little math shows a 17" wide screen laptop with 133dpi.

I generally agree that if web standards are used and the browsers interpret them the same, then the viewer should see the same general image. Text is a big factor here because different systems draw text differently and take up space differently. Then of course the audience can set the text sizes differently than what the web developer expected.
