Anyone know the name or where I can get it?
Ive been obsessed with this font for my entire life lol.

If nobody knows Ill just make my own!

Its like the default mac system font.

This is the closest ive found: http://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=apple
but its still not very close, its too squared.

The original font is called Chicago. The only legal source is the Mac OS system software.*

* However, there is a rip-off of the Chicago pixel design called 'Pix Chicago' available via dafont.

The legality of rip-off font design is questionable. Iirc, dafont listed a rip-off of the Chicago font itself a while back, but removed it, presumably after a legal approach.
