    I have just received 17" Macbook Pro High Res Matte LED version great machine, does have a yellow tint to the bottom of the screen that is slightly noticeable.

    3 Year Warranty I live in Switzerland, I don't currently have a calibrator what are the best calibration pieces of software to use?

    I have also changed from 1.8 Gamma to 2.2 and native to D65.

    Noticed an Immediate positive effect, but still needs alot more.

    I don't currently have a calibrator unless you would like to buy me one!, currently need software calibration tips with people who have the LED Screens and have experience with photo editing ( photoshop,maya) and designing would be good

    Have you tried SuperCal? http://www.bergdesign.com

    I have a great profile that I've created for the 17" high-res, but it's for the previous-gen (non-LED) screen, so I doubt the results would be as impressive on the new one.

    Just what I was thinking. I did this for my MBP. After a few tries at it, it improved color accuracy tremendously.

    SuperCal sometimes requires great care. I recommend calibrating in complete darkness (with ambient light sensor turned off) and being very meticulous with the curves. My best SuperCal profile took me about 45 minutes to do.
