If you scroll down to the entry "Apple Display Video Card Table". My profile has a more agressive correction on the blues, which was my biggest complaint initially. As result, my profile will give you a warmer picture than the DellEFI profile. My profile looks amazing on my Dell Mini, maybe it's because I profiled it against my display.

My suggestion is to download my profile and try it, see which one looks better on your Mini.
It looks fabulous on my mini - thanks!

Would you mind uploading your profile? I have an A90 as well, and all of the Mini 9 profiles look a little odd. I COULD borrow a $1000 spectrometer from my father's work, but I don't feel like it :P

EDIT: spectrophotometer, not spectrometer
