Laptop screen buying help
Aug 31, 2012

Hi can anyone please help.

I want to buy a 15 inch laptop for photo editing, been researching for months now and still cannot make up my mind. (I am aware that it is best to use a larger external monitor). I did consider the Retina MBP but I thought that the base model was too expensive for just 256gb flash drive.

I have been looking at a company called PC Specialist and their ‘Build Your Own’ specifications and I was wondering if anyone knew how good an AUO Matte 95% Gamut Widescreen would be for photo editing? The colour and the viewing angles are supposed to be amazing.

Would it be so efficient for photo editing, that it would negate the need for an external monitor? (I read a review of the retina MBP, on dpreview that said because of the resolution it can do away with the need for an external monitor.)

Would anyone know how the Retina MBP compares to an AUO Matte 95% Gamut Widescreen?

Thank you.
