    I'm trying to find a good color profile for my macbook pro 13". The default one has my whites seem a little too yellow/warm. The Generic RGB profile looks better in that it's cooler/whiter. any suggestions? I'd like something in between.

    I just use the default one. I haven´t really thought much about it, but I think the other options are ugly.

    Default one is too warm for me so I calibrated mine. You can try to calibrate it. I used Expert Mode.

    Not here
    Why don't you try making your own? You can get a SpyderExpress3 for about $70 now.

    Just calibrate it to your own liking, do it by eye if you don't want a device.

    Personally I use supercal to calibrate my screen. It seems to work really well if you take your time calibrating with it.

    Mine is for the 15" and would be mostly useless to you. There are instructions on how to use the expert mode but if you don't want to get into that, just use normal mode and adjust the white point of the display. Not as effective but probably better than putting up with the yellow tint.

    Every LCD screen is different and using somebody elses color profile is going to produce undesirable results.
