This answer was rated:

I have a MacBookPro and the colors on the screen are dull and not true. I have brightened the screen to the highest setting and bright colors seem to have too much black or gray. How can I calibrate the monitor to show truer colors. I'm an artist and the right colors are very much a part of my work. I have a G5 at home and the colors are beautiful on it. How can I bring the laptop colors to the same level as the desktop? Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX
GreetingsCustomer it seems as though you may have the wrong profile loaded for your MacBook Pro screen which will affect the color temperature.
Open the Displays pane of System Preferences and select the Color tab.
Select the desired color profile.

Or you can also create a custom profile by clicking the Calibrate button in the Color tab of the Displays preference pane. This will open the Display Calibrator Assistant. Using expert mode, you can choose the color temperature you prefer.

If you require further assistance please let me know. Thank you for using Just Answer.
