Up until now I've been editing all my images on a 15" TN laptop screen, and I feel I'm not getting the best out of my images because of the horrible screen.
After the summer I'm about to build a desktop computer, and I'm trying to choose a screen for it.
The question is: Should I go for a 24" Dell U2410/HP LP2475 wide gamut monitor, or should I save some money(and probably some hassle) by sticking to sRGB and getting a Viewsonic VP2365 or similar IPS monitor?
I don't mind a 22" or 23" screen, but I want at least 1920x1080 resolution, and all the wide gamut screens I've seen in that size segment are 1680x1050.
The Dell U2410 is much cheaper than the HP, but it still costs 4000 SEK(Dell doesn't sell displays in Finland, I have to import them from Sweden). For that cost I could almost get two 22" sRGB IPS monitors.
I'll be running Linux on this computer, and I have no experience with color management in Linux. Does anyone here have experience with Linux color management?
I'm also interested in starting printing my own photos, and that's one of the reasons wide gamut is tempting.
