I know Apple has been notorious for this of late, but I don't know your laptop's brand but I assume the same thing. There are differences in the monitor types if you look when you build a custom laptop. These choices are usually a glossy screen or an anti-glare screen. Usually the latter is what is given because there are typically more sales from non-design use as opposed to design use. While there is usually not a price difference this is often the case.
Unfortunately there is no real solution to this. Because you can't just replace the screen of your laptop monitor, you would have to replace the entire thing. Just be careful the next time you go to buy a laptop if you are buying it for design purposes.
Well thanks for the very rapid response!
Oooh dear me he is going to be one very frustrated guy, I did advise going the usual route first properties/ settings, and looking at those by right click desktop but on a laptop.
I myself do not have the luxury of both enviroments lolol So the web site is ready and send everything up but it will look naff for all on a laptop yes? ~sharp intake of breath~ How does everyone else cope with this.
Has anyone contacted Apple about this dreadful problem. Whats the point in paying an x amount of pounds for software only to find that it does'nt display correctly on Apple gear.
I am disguted with Apple.
Thanks very much SnakEyez02
I made a mistake making mine the answer now I can't remove it..*doh.
It's not an Apple problem, really. Each monitor displays colors

Well it's not an Apple specific problem as stated before. Also when you custom build the machines you have the option of choosing the different displays (I believe Dell also gives this option as well). Usually images appear a bit darker or shades might be slightly altered. However, don't think this means your site will look inconsistent. The colors will still make your site look presentable.
Usually only designers will notice these issues because your eyes are trained to look for these differences where most people are not looking for this discrepancy. It's like the Aquafina water case ( http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/business/AP-Aquafina-Tap-Water.html?_r=1&oref=slogin ). People only care that it was bottled tap water because they are told it is so now whereas before people could taste Aquafina and tap water and would probably say that Aquafina came from a mountain spring. If people don't look for it they don't see it. So don't worry too much about this.
Thanks SnakEyez02 and Murray,
SnakEyez02 I will have a look at that link. thanks for that. I think the poster with the problem has accepted his fate and changed the color to white, not my cup of tea but hopefully its not finished yet.
