I think its worth mentioning, the calibration tool is trying to set the Gamma to 2.2 and the White Point to 6500K. Not sure if this is correct. I do have the option to change the Target but not sure which option to choose.
I don't want to get into details. Greg I think you should really talk about monitor/display selection on your show as it is the most confusing thing for a lot of people.
"A look at color space reproduction shows that the Ideapad's screen cannot cover either the sRGB or the AdobeRGB color space. These rates are significant for professional image editing, for example. sRGB is covered by 65.8 percent, and AdobeRGB has a coverage rate of 48.8 percent.
The screen's average DeltaE 2000 shift achieves a rate of 9.88 in delivery state, and is thus on par with most screens that we have assessed. Only yellow achieves the target range of DeltaE smaller than 3. The screen exhibits a bluish cast."
This image was processed pre-calibration. When editing, the colors and tones looked OK. Now, post calibration, the image looks flat. It feels like its lacking depth between my shadows and highlights.
Once you get serious you can always get a small IPS display to use as a reference monitor. The Asus PA line promos.asus.com/US/PASeries/ is a cheaper alternative to Dell Dreamcolours and NEC Multisync displays I hear.
Brent is right, having a second monitor for editing may be the best way to go since you have already bought your laptop. I recently bought two of these and love them. ASUS PB238Q www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00906GBBC/ref...kId=IS624QH36HBBWOQC . When I calibrated them the new profile had next to no visible change. Quite happy with them for a $200 ips panel.
