    Hey I bought the monitor (lg 27UD68)
    I have compared them together
    And they have different calibrated screen.
    Which one should be changed u think?
    And also want to know people who have the same monitor .

    Depends on what you need. Leaving the obvious differences aside (matte vs glossy and MBP screen's better colour reproduction), you should decide yourself. Since you're asking that question, you're probably not a pro photo editor, so more yellowish background might be easier on your eyes when reading a lot from the screen.

    Neither: all monitors differ slightly in their colour balance out of the box, even ones of the same model from the same manufacturer (which these aren't). That's why people working with colour-managed workflows use hardware calibration devices to get consistent colour across different screens. If you need consistency you need to buy one of the available hardware & software alternatives: you can get partway there by using macOS's built-in calibration tool (in display preferences) but you won't get as close as using a proper calibration device.

    For most of us non-image-proofing non-pros, using macOS's built-in calibration is good enough, too. It used to present its advanced options right up front, but not now -- you'd need to hold Option (I think) when clicking the Calibrate button in the Displays pane of System Preferences.

    When I do this, I take off my glasses to blur the calibration sliders, and it seems to help a lot. I take my time and spend about ten minutes or so.

    If I got an external display, I'd do a calibration for it, too.

    Unless you calibrate them with an external calibrator you are always going to have variance across displays.
    And even then they are calibrated the same for only one brightness and contrast setting. So expecting two devices to have the same color all the time is unrealistic.
