Methinks your screen image is too small. Perhaps this larger one may do the trick (I also put it in tif format to conserve the transparent background): jpgapple-monitor.tif

Generally, when you resize an image smaller, it won't affect the quality.

I used Google Chrome and found a larger image. There is a Google Chrome extension called Search by Image (by Google) that makes searching for images quite simple. Find any image then use this extension to fins all sizes of any image.
