    Hi guys,

    I have just bought a MBA, 2 days ago but after setting it up and all that,
    I went online to read some stuff, but the weird thing is it looks so blurry
    when i compare with my old laptop that has a win7?
    Any reason why or how it can be fixed its really annoying :(?
    Thanks in advance!

    Can you post a screen, just to make sure that it is not your eyes that is deceiving you... is it on a browser that you are viewing it as blurry?

    Try to disable universal access, you might have zoom enabled.

    Ditto on the screenshot, to make sure you're actually having a problem.

    A lot of times, when someone switches from Windows to OS X, they notice that text looks different. That's because the Mac renders fonts more accurately, so they look more like actual print. Windows displays them in a way that might be sharper at first glance, but is actually less accurate and not as 'full.' If it's just this, you'll get used to it after a couple of days, and when you go back to Windows you'll think it looks weird.

    Here's what text should look like on your Mac:
