I just got a 22 inch Dell Flatscreen, and hooked it up to my macbook using the mini-DVI to DVI Apple Adapter.

I also have my pc hooked up using the Analog connection, but it seems that the PC is a much more clear/crisp display than my Macbook.

I have the screen resolution set to 1680 by 1050 on both the PC and my Macbook (its the screen's native resolution), but still... the Mac looks a little fuzzy and not as clean.

Any ideas of why the PC (7 or 8 years old) would have a better display than my few month old Macbook? Are there some settings that I could be overlooking?

Thanks in Advance,
