I have a rather cheap HP laptop. I use it for retouching my photos. I have experienced a huge difference in final colors between this laptop and a Samsung LCD monitor, which I think is better.
To be able to achieve the good results that can be easily seen on many 500px photos (I mean not top notch, but still correct and pleasant):
- Do I need to calibrate my current HP laptop monitor? The colors and brightness vary quite a bit with little angle variations, so the monitor is not so great ,I think.
- Can I use a non calibrated better monitor (in that case any price/model example would be great)?
- Do I need to buy a better monitor and calibrate it?
