    Standalone monitor is so cheap now it's best to get one and calibrate it properly and use it for your photo editing. Plus the screen is bigger.

    I find my laptop screen hard to calibrate. For one thing it seems I couldn't adjust the colour temperature.

    IMHO, laptops are not the most ideal to get accurate colour because of the tilt and viewing angles. If you use a proper calibration tool like Spyder or X-rite, there'll be a process during the calibration to tune the brightness. Laptops don't usually have contrast adjustments though.

    Yeah that's what I did. And that's when I realized that my old photos had weird colours.

    Yes. Don't forget to calibrate.
