    Hi,
    I work primarily on a laptop. Every time I finish a piece and I look at it on my laptop it looks exactly how I want it but when I look at it on another computer screen it looks TOTALLY different, much darker and more contrast. How can I fix this? I don't have the money to shell out and buy an external monitor.
    Thanks,
    Jake

    You should care of only one thing, configure your monitor for your own use. Your colors, brigthness and contrast should be balanced so what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG) 70% of every monitors in the world are too dark or too luminous.

    If one day you want to spend some money on a good monitor, not just good...AWESOME monitor, there's only one you have to check out.

    good luck Jake

    Wow... that's an awesome monitor. But $3,024.25 ... ouch that's pricey.
