    I've calibrated the 9c84 screen of the unibody Macbook Pro as well as the 9c5F screen of the oldest Macbook.

    Yeah I just got a new mbp and the colors are off. I've tried to calibrate it myself the blacks have a grayish tint to them. I feel like the colors could be a lot sharper

    I calibrated the displays with Eye-one Match 3 software.

    For the new Macbook Pro, apart from the less impressive black level, I'm actually impressed by the colors. Somehow it reminds me of the EIZO T565 CRT that I used a number of years ago. I'm not talking about color accurazy but the gamut the display is able to cover.

    Back light bleeding is minimal on the display. I did not try shooting it with a DSLR. But it is not an issue most of the time except when in complete darkness where it could be noticed. Black level is more of an issue in complete darkness, IMHO.

    The software is free but you need to use i1Display 2 with it.

    Would you happen to know what panel you did the calibration on? I have a 9C9E and it looks a little on the cool side of my screen, but everything else pretty much matches up with my calibration I did in the built-in utility to OSX.

    It looks like the new 13" MBP has around 72% NTSC gamut coverage.
    The triangle is comparable to that of Dell 22" 2209WA.
