Is the panel from the display the same as the ones used in imacs and mbp? I assume so right?
I believe not. Firstly: Size, which is an obvious difference. And also, the date which they were all released are hugely different, so there may be better panels in some models.
You'll probably get the same picture though TBH.
just need to know if ill get the same color rendering
i believe you will
What does this mean exactly?
Are you hoping for the color a iMac/MBP to look exactly like the color on a Apple display?
Are they running side by side?
What kind of color calibrator are you using?
Yes just wondering if they will look the same
yes they should...
Alright thanks guys! just ordered one
They will not. Sorry.
Maybe if you were to use the same color calibrator on them with the same settings they *might* be close.
Thats a lot of $$ for a 24" display.
They are definitely not the same. The LED ACD uses an H-IPS panel - a high quality panel. The MBP (and most all notebooks) uses a cheaper TN (6-bit) panel that uses dithering. The newest iMacs boast IPS panels, an improvement over previous generations, but not the "same" as the LED ACD.
Comparing my unibody 13" MBP with my LED ACD, it's obvious the MBP's display is warmer than the LED ACD.
If you want consistent color reproduction you will probably have to carefully calibrate each display with a colorimeter.
Even the same model LCD displays can exhibit minor inconsistencies between each other.
The only panel thats similar/pretty much exactly the same as the LED ACD is the previous gen 24" iMac
