I'm about to buy my first laptop, mostly for transferring CF card files and burning DVDs on location, and internet connecting when I'm out of town, which is rare. Although I don't plan on using it for any retouching or serious output, I know I'll be tempted to review images on it from time to time and want the color to look right. So the question is, can the color/density be calibrated on laptops, and if so, how is this generally done, with the video card or some third party software? My desktop monitors have external controls, but I've never noticed them on laptops. I'm closing in an HP because of the combination of features, price, value, and the screen (its not a high-gloss screen). Also, I can buy it at Costco which has a great 6-month return policy if I don't like it.
