    technically yes they can, but i wouldn't trust it to do any true color work. W/ laptops you look at them at different angles all the time, and just 1 or 2 degrees difference can make a significant change on what you're seeing. So yes, technically you can use a calibrator on them, but unless you somehow lock it down to make sure it's stationary and you're looking at it exactly the same way everytime, then it's not going to be truely accurate.

    I'd still say calibrated at diff angles is better than not calibrated at diff angles.

    I can see your point.


    I just want it somewhat better than it is.

    I'd probably just put it next to my desktop monitor and "eyeball" it with test charts displayed on each screen.
