I also get this aliasing problem when connecting my MBP to an external monitor. Resolution on the external monitor is 1920x1080, and my laptop is using 1440x900.

Setting a lower resolution on the external monitor makes all apps blurry though, but with the full hd resolution only sublime text 2 is blurry.

@quarnster, I did some more digging on this and it turns out it has something to do with how OSX renders fonts for certain LCD monitors. I was experiencing this with my MacBook Air when attached to a Samsung LCD monitor. However, there was no issue when just using the Macbook Air on it's own or with my Apple Cinema Display.

Here is what I did to fix it. Run the following code in Terminal:

Code: Select all
defaults -currentHost write -globalDomain AppleFontSmoothing -int 2

Then restart your system. Once OSX booted up again, the problem was gone. You can read more about this here:
