    Hi,

    I recently connect my MBA to Dell U2711 by a mini display port to DVI-D adaptor in order to have more working space for editing photo on Aperture 3. I find the color on my MBA is quite a lot different than in the Dell U2711. Do I have to do something on the MBA or Dell U2711 so that both display can have almost same color.

    Another question is how high resolution I can get to connect to a 27" or 30" external monitor because the highest I could get was somewhat 1960x1200 (I forget the exact number)

    Thanks for your expert advice

    I have the same setup. Remember the U2711 is a wide gamut display. You need to calibrate it. I bought the spyder 3 express just for the puck and downloaded ColorEyes Display Pro trial to calibrate the displays, including my MBA.

    i think you will find it hard to make it match exactly, i dont think the mba has an IPS screen that the dell has. Also, the dell comes pre-calibrated from the factory and the mba does not. your best bet would to do what ja12ke suggests and get a hardware calibrator to get it as close as possible.

    Thanks guys, I have an i1Display 2 and will do the calibration to see how it will go.
