I dont know whether this has any bearing now but I can recall that during the early days, PC was "text" based whereas Apple (Mac) was "graphic" based. These may still account for it.

We're talking about just looking at the screen
Some Apple Cinemas and Dell widescreen flat panels share the same LG Philips LCD panels. So I don't get it? It's not like the displays are all manufactured by Microsoft and Apple standards. Just about all the different Apple Cinema sizes use different panels with varying IQ levels, and connecting Apple Cinemas to a PC doesn't magically change the panel's properties.

Which reminds me, are you even looking at images with the same screen? It's very stupid, IMO, to view at the images using different screens and coming to the conclusion that images look fantastic on Macs and not on PCs. It wouldn't take a rocket scientist to know that a PC environment viewed with a $50 dollar CRT looks like crap compared to a Mac environment viewed with a $5000 Apple Cinema display. Now try the identical display on both setups.

Okay, I was wrong, fonts are included. But again, what's this got to do with pictures?!

it depends on the quality of the LCD that is use, the spec of the LCD makes big differences.

I think mac looks good on their displays is because of the cable they are using, firstly most computers windows base are using VGA unless you opt to use DVI and all MAC's are using DVI, but i dont find any difference when i see the mac book and the lappy mostly the same. Unless you are talking about the Macbook Pro, because of their high res graphic card by NVIDA. So i think is because specially made for mac.
