But I have a laptop I cant customize my hardware to meet os x needs.
Ah sorry I missed that. Although there are a few hackintosh compatible laptops out there too.

I'd actually like the text APIs to gain sub-pixel positioning support in 10.9, or at least a public API for enabling it (Currently it snaps glyphs to pixel boundaries, so rotated or animated text jumps between whole pixels, which looks like crap)
Safari can disable it (or at least avoid it), but applications like Firefox or Preview draw their text in such a way that they can't benefit from that. DirectWrite on Windows supports it, and it leads to much nicer rendering (Which funnily enough is also one of the things people hate about it, since it renders much more correctly than GDI does).
