Eclat slash aluminum pedals.. 1 bent axle out of sealed new box, bearings in that pedal were jacked out of the box, and they aside from that had a cheap look and feel, and were heavy..

Your resolution on the newer system is 1080 on your new system, and your old system had a lower resolution. This allows your computer to essentially zoom out, providing you with more pixels/real estate.. its a good thing
