    should I get new macbook pro monitor calibration? Differs from Powerbook?
    I just upgraded from my 5 year old powerbook to a brand new macbook pro. I love how fast it is! The images look great on the laptop as well; but I notice that they seem far higher in contrast, saturation, and sharpness. Does anyone else notice this?
    I mostly do my editing from a crt monitor that I attach.

    With my old powerbook I had it calibrated with the One Eye and got pretty accurate results.
    Do I need to calibrate this new computer as well?
    I was told that mac's produce color accurate images; but the new laptop's screen just produces such a dynamically different image.
    Should I recalibrate both the laptop and monitor?
    Any advice on how this works?

    No two displays will give you the same color without calibration. Your best bet is to calibrate the external display that you do your work on, I think.
