    I recently got a 12" PowerBook and so far I love it except for one thing: The web fonts seem a little fuzzy and anti-aliased, kind of like a Photoshop file.

    Coming from the PC side, I'm used to sharp web fonts that make for easier reading.

    Is there some setting I need to change?

    Go to System Preferences, Appearance, and check the Font Smoothing Style. Choose medium - best for flat panel. Although on Mac OSX, smooth fonts are the norm and you will get used to the slightly soft lettering. It's actually easier on the eyes and less stressful.
