    50%, right? Also, is 50% on a mac any brighter or darker than default brightness settings on a pc?

    I use 80% when on blender rendering stuff. Makes it look clearer...:D

    But if you turn it down too low on a glossy screen it just turns it into a mirror, unless in a darkish room.

    It totally depends on your surrounding environment. Also, not every backlight is the same brightness though this varies much less with the LED backlights now used in Apple's laptops.

    Are you on a glossy MBP? Most photographers use the matte/AG displays to ensure their color management is accurate.
