Not unusual if you have different hardware, peripherals and settings involved.

You said multiple computers, not the same machine and different builds. You changed the parameters of the question.

Then you need to see if the different OS builds are auto choosing different driver sets. Beyond that I don't have any suggestions.

Does that one computer, however, have different hardware than the others?  A different type of monitor?  As Animal stated in his first reply, that will affect how the fonts look.

Maybe on one there is ClearType enabled, and on the other it is disabled? Just compare the settings between the two machines in Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Display window. Also, click on "Adjust ClearType text" and make sure that ClearType is enabled.
