    I've got a 17" MacBook Pro that I've had for 2 years now. I love the laptop, although the screen is glossy. I got it for $1799 (two years ago, that was an awesome deal), so I couldn't complain about the screen. I would have preferred the matte, but for $1000 difference, I was willing to settle with the glossy. Back then, I wasn't interested in photography, but now that I am, I'm a bit worried about calibration. I've got a Spyder 2 Pro available to me and was wondering if that would help at all, or if I'm better off just looking into an external monitor for doing editing? Thanks a lot.

    I calibrated my new macbook (glossy).

    It was a very small difference, it was just a hair too cool and need to be warmed up a bit.

    I'm sure it wouldn't hurt anything, but I could be wrong.

    obviously it would be best to edit on an external screen if thats an option.
