    I got a Mac and I'm amazed how much nicer the monitor is. Everything on my PC looks dull and gray compared to the Mac. We'll see if what they say is true...Once you go Mac, you'll never go back!!:mrgreen:

    There is no difference between the PC and a Mac except for the operating system. Why is that so hard to comprehend?

    After having 4 pc laptops in 4 years I bought my first Mac. That was 3 years ago and it's still in perfect working order. Best service, best quality. I'll never plan to buy a PC again.

    Was your PC screen calibrated?
    Did you calibrate your Mac screen?

    Except MAC screen is shiny. Hard to see if the color is good or not.

    Yeah. I calibrate the monitor and then I lower the brightness to 30% when I'm editing photos. I got some test handout color matching cards from the local photo lab and I compared with the screen. It looked good to me so I made some proof prints and they matched the screen. I'm not sure if is the right way to do it. But I like the result. I like it bright when I'm
    Watching video and I lower the brightness to about 30 percent to edit the photos.

    I didn't think you were suppose to touch your brightness after calibration? Isn't the whole point to calibrate it for editing?
