    For example here http://www.apple.com/mac/ what font does Apple use? Where can I download the font? It looks pretty cool. :)

    Well, for the ads and for the labels (like the image for the MacBook Pro in the middle of that webpage), they use Myriad :).

    I think it just looks cool because of all the expensive stuff around it ;-p

    Aha! I knew it. As Waterwizard11 said, I thought it was the stuff around it that made me feel like the font was so nice, but I guess it was the font itself.

    Sometimes this comes in handy when trying to figure out what font you're looking at: http://www.myfonts.com/WhatTheFont/

    All you have to do is take a screen grab of a word or a few letters :)

    Well, I like Myriad (Pro), its a very clean font. Different feel than Apple's old Apple Garamond.
