I have a 15" MBP (2011 i7, with the hi-res screen). When I scroll text, the text becomes quite blurry. Blurry enough that I started watching other monitors/computers when using them, and I they are much better.

As I type this on my work computer :)eek:) I can scroll the page while continuing to focus on a single word. Not easy, but I can. If I try to do the same on my MPB, my eyes want to bug out.

Is there a setting I could have messed up? Does anyone else notice this?

Thanks,
~S

interesting utility. But it appears that the card makes not difference. Must just be the screen.

I am comparing it to non-macs, I am wondering if the fact that text is OSX scrolls so smoothly is the problem, while in Windows, it jerks down 3 lines at a time, you don't actually see the blurring.

can you connect to an external screen and see if it persists? maybe take a video of the issue on your screen and post it on youtube or something?

fwiw when i scroll up and down quickly my text goes a little blurry too...

Any chance that changing your Appearance system pref settings for font smoothing and smooth scrolling would make an improvement???

I'll look at this when I get home. I don't recall seeing that setting before, but it sounds like it may be a candidate. Yes, I do use an external, haven't hooked it up in a bit, but I will this week, and see what that is like.
