They all differ screen to screen. ....I suggest you profile/calibrate the screen on the macbook with a color calibration unit ...or....use the OSX one under display. If you are looking for color profiles to print with then get them from the equipment manufacturer .

i dont know if calibrating a 13" screen of a 3yr old MB is the best use of resources. i was just hoping someone had calibrated theirs using the internal OSX calibration, as i cant really figure out how to use the advanced settings - adjusting "curves" until the apple logo becomes grayish or whatnot yields a very warm look to the image. not sure what im doing wrong

That being said: I've never gotten a good result "calibrating" any LCD screen with this. It worked okay-ish on a CRT.
