Hi Gasper,

You need a utility named "Silk" which you can find at

http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/silk

"Silk enables the Quartz text rendering and smoothing introduced in Mac 
OS X 10.1.5 in all Carbon applications."

Hopefully this will be unnecessary with the next release of Mathematica.

(BTW, congratulations on your wise switch!)
