    macbook display
    Hey, I just bought a new macbook. The color seemed very light and not very rich. I was quite dissapointed. So, I went under the color preferences and seleced "Adobe RGB (1998)". The color then became much deeper and richer. Is this normal? The color I saw when I first used the system was very poor, I'm not sure why. What do you guys use for your color preference? Mine was on "Color LCD" before I switched it.

    Thanks.

    P.S. Otherwise I'm loving the new macbook!

    on the macbook screen, the LCD colors should be perfect... if you change into anything else it will not be right... but if you hooked up macbook to a monitor, then yeah, you need to switch to something like adobe rgb, otherwise colors will be dull

    on my DVI LCD screen (external monitor) i use adobe '98
    on macbook LCD screen, I use the default LCD screen one

    Well, this setting doesn't seem to conflict with anything the computer does, and I don't mind it. The closest Apple store is a ways away and I don't feel like driving all the way there to complain. Nor do I feel like sending the computer back to Apple when I am leaving for school in less than a month.

    Guess this just makes my computer more unique right? haha

    Why not calibrate it to what looks best to you? After all, that is what the custom calibration is for. :black:
