    I have a new Macbook Pro 13 inch. When I use gmail, labels show up in beautiful colors on the screen. However, when I connect an external display (I tried three displays) the colors of the labels become almost invisible. When I try to calibrate with this card ( I can't see the boxes in the white strip on the right no matter how I set all three moniters (unless I go down to D50 yellow).

    When I talked to the Genius Bar they said this is normal because the MacBook Pro doesn't have a good video card to run external displays. Is this true?

    Has anyone bought a monitor that accurately reproduces color externally run from the MacBook Pro?

    This is the Mac Pro forum. You should redirect this to that forum.

    BTW: Sounds more like you have a bad cable or video card setup.

    The colors should be displayed fairly accurately on any external monitor.
