    Hello everyone. I have a problem with the clarity and sharpness of text on my new 2.0ghz unibody Macbook. The text, regardless of how bright my screen is or what the size of the text is, seems fuzzy and unclear.

    Can anyone suggest a way to make things appear sharper? I do wear glasses, but it's minimal prescription.

    If your coming from a Windows machine it's a natural response. Mac uses anti-aliased fonts. It just takes a little getting use to. Once you do you'll find Windows text very ugly and hard to read.

    You can try adjusting the font smoothing behavior in the System Preferences -- Appearance.
