    I recall during my pre-switch research that some people complained about the default Color Profile on the MB... has anyone actually calibrated their MB display using a hardware calibration tool (Spyder, etc)? If so, would you mind sharing the profile here?

    Not yet but soon

    I use a Spyder 2 Pro to calibrate the Apple 23" attached to my G5.

    I have ordered the Core 2 duo Mac Book which hopefully will arive in a week or so. The first thing I will do after installing photoshop is calibrate the display. I will let you know how close the default settings are.

    Colorvision make three versions of their "SPYDER" claibration system.
    Spyder 2 express (Bottom of the range) and cheapest. GOOD RESULTS
    Spyder 2 suite Middle of the range BETTER RESULTS
    Spyder 2 Pro Top of the range and the most expensive BEST RESULTS

    Ideally all displays should be calibrated at least once a month.

    The Spyder range can be bought from any good computer store.

    If you are working with images, you really need a calibrated display. If your colours are not displayed correctly how can you make colour adjustments with confidence.
