    good and easy way is using Spyder 3.

    Software with automatic calibration process, you only have to follow instructions from software an it generates a icc profile from your monitor.

    Or.. check some xrite devices .. cheapest for monitor calibration is i1display 2, or take the pro version i1pro

    I second xrite. Worked great at a shop I used to work at.
    I shoulda gone to college instead of the family print shop...

    you can try this:
    http://www.printroot.com/forum/f13/best-way-calibrate-monitor-without-hardware-2607/

    or better buy an eye-one display.
    if you need better software, try basiccolor.
    you can test a trial first:

    I1 display 2 is probably the best tool to calibrate any monitor.. Mac monitor also of course !

    Pantone Range of Calibration

    I would suggest a Color Munki, it's also very useful for basic ICC profiling (monitor and Printer), capturing colours and creating pallettes that work with your printing device.

    A very inexpensive, entry level hardware monitor calibration is a pantone huey - The Huey Pro Calibrates all types of monitors LCD, Laptop and CRT.

    It's surprising our decieveing the eye can be when dealing with colour

    Well Colormunki is OK for montor calibration... however the results for ICC profiles are far from what you can get with a serious I1 and a profilemaker or equivalent !

    I agree lephot, I said the color munki included basic profiling not professional, I also use i1 and other xrite profiling hardware for the studio. but find the Color Munki and ideal addition to the laptop bag.

    X-rite i1 display 2 is not good for calibrate glossy display.

    The best Device to calibrate a Monitor is the basICColor Discus, more expensive than an i1... but that's the state-of-the-art!

    However, Apple screens are known to be poor for color purpose... therefore, a much simpler colorimeter should be enough for your screen.

    If you want to go further (Eizo, etc.), the Discus is actually, the best colorimeter that you can find!

    Hope that helps

    Or check out the new Colormunki Display and i1Display Pro. i1Profiler (bundled) delivers very good results.

    As PanozJani suggests, you can try the last software from Xrite, it offers a quality control analysis about the screen uniformity for instance...

    If you do not have a good uniformity, you cannot get a pleasant result :-(

    Check it out!

    Hope that helps!
