Ok, I've been reading a LOT about this and still have questions. Not sure if this is the right thread but it was the closest one I could find to deal with this subject. Ok. I have a Sony Vaio and a Dell Inspiron. I do not have a desktop pc. Both of my laptops are glossy screens. Now my question is this. I do all my photo work on my Sony, and love working on it. BUT do I need an external monitor with a matte screen to view my PP work? Also about calibration. Can a laptop be calibrated or should I buy an external matte monitor and calibrator? If so, does it matter what brand of screen or type?
