Hi Guys, As part of my day job, I am required to travel and bring my laptop with me. At the moment I use a Lenovo W530 with a factory color calibrated screen that supposedly gives me supports 98% of the Adobe RGB gamut, based on user reports over at photography-on-the-net forums. http://photography-on-the.net/forum/showthread.php?t=1270777 However, I am aware that the retina macbook pro is a very highly regarded laptop by many photographers and users of these forums and it does have a very high resolution screen. I enjoy many of the fine art quality images that I have seen you guys create I was about to take the plunge on a MBP retina 15", for the additional resolution which I figured would turn out to be handy when sharpening and getting a relatively good idea of print output. HOWEVER - today i was looking at my flickr account on both my W530 and my girlfriends retina macbook pro and it felt like many of the colors were over saturated on the MacBook Pro retina screen - or at least the color range was much more compressed. I had wondered if this was perhaps one browser interpreting the images as Adobe RGB and another not interpreting the wider color gamut and instead interpreting as sRGB (used chrome on both). I believe chrome on mac does not presently support adobe rgb. I've downloaded the TIFF's to both laptops and opened both in windows viewer and Mac OS X preview - same thing the out of the box lenovo looks more accurate according to what I am intending to create than what I am getting from the MBP retina which makes many of my images look pretty badly over-saturated and possibly over sharpened. Comparing with print output, the Lenovo at the moment looks to give me a much wider dynamic range of colors and what I am seeing on screen is closer to the print output so I am sort of answering my own question here. However, I don't have a Spyder color calibrator with me at present and I have an option on a cheap mac book pro retina - My question is , if I buy the mac book pro retina, is there much scope to color calibrate the screen and still use adobe RGB. Have any of you guys here noticed what I have noticed with the out of the box color profiles for the MBPr screen ? After color calibration how do you find the screen? It looks to be a phenomenal laptop in terms of OS, hardware, screen, etc... I just got a bit of a surprise when I checked out my images today online and they did not look good at all on the Apple screen. Perhaps if I just switched back to sRGB when editing on the Lenovo I just wouldn't have to worry about such crap :/. Or maybe as a hack, I should just export at the last moment converting to sRGB (I know this is a badly idea overall) and how far off my aRGB the image is before deciding to rework the photo again or not in sRGB from scratch. Thanks, Tom. EDIT : just remembered, the in built color calibrator on my W530 may actually be out of whack / maybe the mbp is better callibrated out of the box (even without a hardware callibrator ) ?!
