Hope this hasn't been covered before, but as the search didn't bring up many results, I figured I'd post this and hope to get some answers. I'm a graphic designer doing mostly web design and some print design that will be sent to a print house. I have an un-calibrated MBP that is in dire need of calibration, and I'd rather purchase a calibration device to do that. I've been looking at the Spyder3 products and I was wondering what the major differences between the Elite and the Pro are, and if they're even an issue for somebody with my needs. Normally I'd just go with the one with more features, but seeing as I'm still recovering from student loans, the $110 USD difference is more than enough to make me contemplate going for the Pro. Any insight/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the reply. I've seen that chart already, but I guess what I was hoping for is if somebody would recommend one over the other for somebody with my needs.

We're considering buying one of these too. We just took delivery of a Dell 2408wfp and a 2007wfp and probably will order a second 2408wpf, so something to calibrate them will be nice.

For us, the main difference is the Spyder3Pro can calibrate a video projector, which we also have. I'm just waiting to have a chat with my boss, then we will see which one we buy or maybe none at all.

Feedback from other people would be nice too.
