Picture 1 is with a calibration and Picture 2 is the calibration the computer shipped with. I am having a hard time figuring out which one looks better. You can see that pic1 is much harsher, it has much more steel looking menus and it actually seems to bug my eyes a little bit...maybe too blue? Pic2 is much more cool and without all the blue's and grey. Maybe pic2 is much more washed out but I was throwing this to the crowd and see how you all feel?
