I hope this isn't true of the latest Apple flat panels, or we're in trouble
- -- half the graphic designers in the country spend their days staring into
one.  I have the most recent version, and I haven't done a great deal of
gamma twiddling, but it has to be possible to get the colors to match up
decently -- after all, the primary function of this beast is Web and print

It's true that I used to do most of my work on a laptop display, and that
this proved dire.  But the latest flat panels are infinitely more
sophisticated (and much, much brighter).

Now you have me nervous...
