Does Lenovo Legion Y530 need calibrating

Recommended Posts

Is it necessary to buy a colour calibrator like a spyder?

No, just use the pre-installed Windows display calibration tool.

Exact model number? Does your workload involves colour sensitive work?

This model has low sRGB IPS display. Even though you calibrate the colours, colour accuracy is still not good

Maybe, if the difference is noticeable. 

If you're doing colour sensitive work, you can notice the difference

 

Where are you from? Budget? Any preference on weight and battery life?

I'm from the UK but currently in Portugal so I can buy from both countries. My budget is around £800 to £1500. I'd like something light weight but if it's heavy it's not a problem. Not fussed about battery. Would like at least 15 inch screen. Should also be a good speed and able to handle light video editing and adobe creative suite.
