Anyone got a good Supercal profile for a 15" Powerbook?

I have a 15" powerbook and the defult calibration on it sucks. It is way to bright and washes things out. I have tried use the included calibration utility with OS X but it never seems to come out quite right. A lot of people use SuperCal and say they love it.

I know you can share profiles from that software and I was wondering if anyone who has a good calibration on SuperCal could share it with me. I am slightly color blind and it makes me hard to try to get the mac color scheme match my windows machine. Thanks!

I just want to say that SuperCal does OWN. I ran it on the iBook and it made everything so better. Now I use it on all the Macs I touch. Sorry, no PB 15" one though. Did you try doing the SuperCal yourself? It's pretty easy, but it takes forever and a few tries.

I would do the supercal thing myself but I am slightly color blind so it is hard for me to do accurate color. If I could get someone else's profile from a 15" powerbook then I would feel more comfortable with having the correct colors. Thanks for the advice tho

Anyone got one....

I'm gonna make one tonight for my brand new Powerbook. I'll let you know if I'm successful.. I wish I could blag a hardware profiler as I'd get more accurate results. But I'm not willing to spend hundreds on something I'll only use once every 6 months!

Well I just did it, and frankly, it looks worse than the default. I'm guessing I didnt do it right, so I'll try again later.

<rant>We have a million pound media facility where I work, with money pouring in from Sony and many other corporations. Its full of lovely Macs, but they are unwilling to spend a couple of hundred quid on a hardware monitor profiler!!! Despite the fact it would probably increase the workflow of the department. Maybe I should convince my boss that owning one for my department (IT/Graphics) would be useful. </rant>
