times, so I'm aware of the anomalies vis-a-vis color, brightness, etc.
(which, as you say, can be considerable). But I'm just curious as to
what Apple considers to be the "factory" setting, since I bought my
iBook secondhand and have no idea whatsoever what the original settings
were. I'm sure you'll agree there's a huge difference between the center
setting and the all-the-way-to-the-right setting (try it on an iBook, if
you've forgotten), but oddly enough they both seem plausible as baseline
settings to me.
I have no hangups about what's supposedly "correct", not do I imagine
that I can control how other people see my images - but, that said,
since I make a meager living based on the perceived accuracy of same,
I'd consider being closer to 42 percent of viewers rather than 39
percent a big enough difference. Hence the question.
