Thanks nakins, a MacBook may be in the future but with more operating computers at home than members of our family (no waiting for a computer if you need one
), I might get pummeled if I buy another computer.
Yep MarkC, you're right - no suction cups for the LCD monitors.
I had no problem calibrating the monitor as per the instructions. With a desktop LCD, there would be no issue because you generally don't sit down at the desktop and adjust the screen viewing angle every time you work. But with a laptop, every time you open the screen, you don't open it to exactly the same viewing angle. Different angle=different amount of luminance, even if the monitor is calibrated! Therefore, PP images can differ greatly from session to session when editing.
I see almost every photographer at workshops and various places using laptops so I thought somebody smarter than me had figured out how to get consistency when editing images with a laptop.
Thanks for ANY advice you guys can give.
