I hope the ibook G5 will be sharper when it hits market one day...

The screen resolution is generally higher on the upper-end PC laptops. The 17-inch pbook goes to 1440x900 resolution (widescreen format), while some PC displays will have a native resolution of 1600x1200 even if the screen itself is smaller. That is why they appear sharper.

Also, Windows XP has font anti-aliasing turned off by default, while OSX has it turned on, so the text would appear smoother under OSX. That could be part of it.
