It's not so much for me as it is for the model, I was having a shoot the other day and I was showing the model some photos on the LCD and she was like "But this Photo is waaaaaay too bright" and I was like "No no, it's the screen - It's kinda bright" and she wanted me to reshoot and didn't believe me that I got it right until I showed her on the Mac and then she was like "Ooooooooh, okay.".

Get another model?

But I do see what you mean - I've had people comment on the screen image before, and they give me rather funny looks when I say that it isn't how it's going to look when printed or on a monitor screen.  For studio-type stuff I shoot tethered to a laptop when possible, and even then most laptop screens are pretty awful (some are good, including Macbooks and some Dell HD screens).
