Neither will be showing you '100% correct' colours.

You iPad will be able to show a wider gamut than your 2008 machine and probably has a more accurate 'out of the box' calibration than the 2008 machine (by a big margin)

You iPad has LED backlighting which can be cooler than the cathode illumination of your 2008.

The iPad screen is of a higher quality than your 2008 laptop.

At the end of the day your iPad is probably the more accurate and would appear closer to a very good quality screen that is accurately calibrated. Your 2008 macbook never had the best quality screen (compared to pro monitors etc) and over the last four years it would have only deteriorated (Slightly)

Even though, Macbook is hardware calibrated frequently?

Thanks a lot!
