    Look into a huey or spyder for calibration.

    Spyder is very good and the calibration device that is placed on the screen has a removable attachment that allows the unit to be used on a laptop screen without damaging the screen.

    I would highly recommend spyder too, but be aware of the following:
    - Laptop displays have generally less control than LCD screens (no Kelvin or RGB sliders, backlight or lightness but not both,...) so calibration may be not so accurate.
    - I could never get spyder express to work on my asus laptop, only spyder pro, so you should make a test before buying.
