I have a aluminum 23inch Apple Cinema Display and a older plastic 17inch Studio Display.

I am trying to get them so the colors and everything look the same.

I think the 17inch is yellower and the 23 inch has more blue and magenta.

I tried and tried to get them to match using the built in Display preferences but I can only get close, not exact.

I can't afford a hardware calibrater device that people use for print, and I am not sure if that will work.

They both look great by themselves, but when used in a dual setup I keep noticing the difference.

it's kinda like looking at the orginal iPhone screen and the 3g, the same but different.

Changing the white levels seems to help but still not dead on. I need to be able to tweak them at the same time and be able to go back and make small changes which the Preferences won't let you do that, you have to start from scratch every time.

Any help?

Did anyone ever make a profile for the new aluminum macbooks?
