    Have you calibrated your screen? If so, can you share here your calibration?

    It's an .icc file located in you ~/Library/Color Sync/Profile or Profiles

    Being "~" your home folder...

    (sorry, English is not my first language)

    I went to apple store today and bought a new 15" i7 hi-res anti-glare MBP. I have the 9CB7 screen. Does any one have a color calibrated profile for it? To anyone with a 9CB7 and screen calibration hardware, please upload your profiles. It will be greatly appreciated!

    Every different screen has different profiles that work for it. You can't share profiles.

    Yes you are correct!

    To OP even if you have two identical laptops the screens will have different calibration settings but with that being said if you still want it here is mine.

    1680x1050 ( high res option ) calibrated with spyder 3 pro to 6500K 2.2 gamma

    I currently have a 13.3" Black MacBook, I use a profile I found in this forum and I'm very happy with it.

    I compare the monitor output to a photographic 18% grey card and I can't see any red/green/blue bias (tint), I load up daylight-white balanced pictures I took with my Nikon DSLR and the colors are real as they get, so I think it's a very good 2nd best ;)

    At least it's a fix for us that can't afford a $100 color calibrator... at least this month :D We aren't doing rocket science after all, are we?

    Thank you, gatepc, do you have the AG or the Matte screen?

    (I suppose that the glass/matte film have different color shifts)

    No I don't have any AG or a matte screen. I know a lot of people don't like glossy, but I do. It does not bother me because most of the time I am in a dark room anyway.

    Glossy HIGH RES?

    To all.
    Please, add more ICC (color) profiles.

    When i had the late 2008 MBP 15" I found a good ICC profile in a similar thread. So please add more ICC profiles because that can be helpful for other peoples.

    Cheers

    The 13 inchers are "calibrated" with profiles found in this forum. The 15 is still awaiting ;)

    The photo which you posted clearly shows why you should not use the color profile of someone else. :(

    This is not limited to Mac, but goes for every display out there. If you see a photo on your screen, you do not want it to look too red for example. By calibrating your screen, it will show the colours as they are. Now you will know if a photo truly is too red, as in this example.

    While this is true, I have found 5-6 profiles on this site and I've just done a trial and error with each on my new 17" i7 AG until I found one that I thought looked right to me.

    I think you posted your factory profile. There's no difference.

    There was another thread where someone used a Spyder for their 17" Glossy iirc.

    Although I found out today a friend of mine has a Spyder I might try to use this weekend.

    Anyone with a calibrated profile for the mid 2010 15" 1440 x 900?

    I calibrated my Core i7 Mid-2010 MacBook Pro with a OptiCal Monaco XR system twice this morning.

    Here's the profile, see if you like it: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7847/Color LCD Calibrated.icc

    I find the response to be a little flatter than the included profile, but the color accuracy to better more accurate and closer to my other external (and profiled) displays.

    NOTE: I've got the high res glossy screen 15": 9CB6 model number.

    PROFILE DETAILS: D65 2.2 Gamma.

    After people calibrate their screens with some hardware based calibration device, do you find the profile to be much warmer than the stock Apple one?

    It's hard to say that it is more warm or cool; moreover I'd say it just seems more accurate as to what I perceive being D65 2.2 with accurate color representation-- however I am seeing a little of the yellow discoloration in the bottom 1/4 of my LCD.

    Yes, all LCD displays have a blue bias, be them CCFL or LED backlit.

    Test with some B&W pictures first, if they appear gray-gray and not gray-blue nor grey-yellow...
