    Do LCDs have native "tints"?

    I'm starting to wonder, because my PB's screen seems to lean towards the green side of the spectrum. When I calibrate it using the "expert" option, it's really tough to make neutral. Am I shooting for grey when they say a neutral color? Also, when I use the sRGB or other profiles, it makes everything seem... blue.

    I have it on Television gamma right now, which makes the contrast better... any suggestions?

    Mine's not too bad, but I did notice that the calibration screens never quite let me get it "perfect" - I need to try to get it to be "close enough". I don't feel that the quality of the screen in my 12" PB is anything like that in my 20" Cinema display.

    You might try SuperCal. Some people swear by it. I was able to get my iBook screen to be a fairly good match to professionally printed materials with the built-in calibrator, though....
