Yet another reason to love your mini: color fidelity - 01-27-2009, 10:40 PM
repost from Gizmodo... article and research basically concludes that Mini 9 has a better screen than the macbook pro. And it's a compelling choice for pro photographers on-the-go. Just another reason why I'm happy I chose the Mini 9.
Rob Galbraith checks out the screens on the three hottest notebooks in their respective classes from a pro photographer's standpointâ€”new MacBook Pro, Dell Mini 9 and Lenovo W700â€”and how they stack up will surprise you
His reference monitor is a Eizo ColorEdge CE240W and he throws a Lenovo ThinkPad T60 into the mix for good measure, since its in-plane switching LCD panel produces good color reproduction and even screen brightness.
That Lenovo's ThinkPad W700â€”which is geared toward pro photographers and has a built-in Pantone calibratorâ€”tops the list for color accuracy and "could just about replace a desktop display" for pro work is probably not so shocking. What is crazy, however, is that the Dell Inspiron Mini 9â€”a $300 netbookâ€”has display with better "overall hue accuracy" than the $1999 MacBook Pro, which is "one or two steps below a good desktop display." BTW, Rob loves the Mini 9 so much he calls it "a workflow-altering experience."
His full assessment of every display is definitely worth reading, even if you're not a photographer.
