Is it resolution, or pixels per inch? or some other measure that I

Both of those are relevant, and indeed there are other measures as
well. Here's a pretty good article almost exactly addressing your
question:

If you find the type blurry right now, it's likely because either you
aren't using an HDMI connector, or you are sitting close enough that
the low(ish) pixel density is apparent.

I have also personally found that it is sometimes the case that even
when you use a digital connector (DVI or HDMI) the picture can seem
fuzzy. For me, this was usually due to the computer not actually using
the native resolution of the display device. (For example, if I am
moving my laptop from one display to another, sometimes it seems to
hold onto the resolution appropriate for the display I had been using,
and not the one I'm currently using. Some combination of unplugging,
rebooting, and general futzing usually takes care of this.)
