  1. #1

    Default Does Apple iBook support screen calibration?

    For example this unit, can one calibrate the screen?

    I was told Apple machines are more suitable for image editing, why?

    Yes, I've used Eye-One on iBook/PowerBook.

    If you want to use for image editing, suggest you get a PowerBook, the screens are better. Once you place a iBook beside the PB, you can see the contrast, colour differences already.

    As for more suitable for editing... I don't know, I work off both my PB and PC.

    i see. if iBook is inferior, then I will just remain with my windows laptop
    for a while, since the plan only gives out an iBook, screen too smal also.

    iBook is 'inferior' compared to PowerBook, but still much better than a Windoze Notebook

    Nope, if you have the Bak-Jiu, bring it down to NUG tonight, I can show you how to calibrate on Mac and pass you the latest EyeOne Match v3.2a for Mac.

    I just calibrated mine last night.

    Photo editing tools? You mean PS CS? Nope, seperately sold. Student (no pun intended to student) version going at S$469.

    iLife '05 comes bundled with all new iBook/PBooks.

    Before you get the 12" powerbook check the ibook side by side. I believe that they use the same screen. Although I've seen both of them, never ever put them side by side, but subjectively, i still prefer the 15" powerbook screen.

    Nope. Definitely not the same screen.

    The 15" as I mentioned earlier, yes, still a better screen than the 12" PB. But PB's screen (12", 15", 17") is still better than any iBook.

    pBook LCD is of a better quality than iBook. However, an iBook LCD still beats any wintel laptop LCD anytime. Better than most desktop LCD too.

    Inferiority is a state of mind my friend.

    Of cos, being a Mac user for 5yrs and a PC user for like 10yrs (since the days of MS-DOS 4), I can tell u that I'd never been more productive on my Mac. Be it my personal hobby, doing mundane stuff right up to OS knowledge.

    If u're one who likes to bring ur stuff when u travel, get da iBook.
    The Powerbook, I must say, feels good but it feels to fragile to the touch.
