    The profile are designed for each monitor
    - with certain brightness
    - at a certain point in time

    Note that high end places usually calibrate their displays every day with hardware calibrators.

    But having one calibrated by someone is still better than the original profile

    It's baffling to me that someone who can spend $3000 on a laptop and who wants color accuracy won't spend $60 on a cheap colorimeter to calibrate it and keep it in calibration (screens do drift in calibration over time. backlights age, etc.)

    9CAC matte profile

    6500K
    2.2 Gamma
    ~90 cd/m2

    The attached picture shows where the brightness slider needs to be for this particular level of brightness. It's using the 9600M with Auto Brightness Adjustment turned off under Display preferences and Auto Dim off under Energy preferences. I ran the calibration about an hour after I turned the panel on, so it should be reasonably stable.

    With this profile, I sacrifice a little contrast on the white end of the scale for better differentiation around the black end, and that's with relatively low levels of ambient light.

    This was done with Eye-One Match and an Old Skool GMB Eye-One Photo (predecessor to current i1 Pro spectrophotometer, I think).

    That is actually a very good profile! The contrast s a bit low, but it sure does shows a bit more detail in the black end! Thx very much! I am looking to buy a colormunki, anyone has any experience with it?

    interesting observation. i had to reinstall osx because for some odd reason the trackpad wasn't working under my profile. I didn't do the complete wipe. I now notice that the blueish tint is gone! I am now using ghoulis matte calab and it seems to look perfect on my glossy.:)
