If the display panel can provide 90% sRGB colours (or better), I'd say, sure...it'll be easier on the eyes at least (e.g. adjust the colour temp). At the very least, get away from the blue tint...down to 6500k... If I work longer hours, I load up the 5500k profile.

(Calibrating displays don't have to only be done on expensive systems).

Least they give you a 1080p screen for minesweeper and solitaire though. Should look REAL nice in 2020.

Yeah, but I wouldn't expect this laptop to have a good screen.

You would be lucky if it can cover even sRGB 60% coverage. No joke. It sure WILL run all of those software, but as said already, why...

Why not if its doable? I do not need a laptop at all. But this would make things a little easier.

Decent sRGB coverage aren't that expensive these days... Does anyone have a panel model number?

And I should have mentioned, its for me to RUN the software to calibrate tvs and projectors. Not to calibrate this screen.

90% sRGB on a $200 laptop? lol... Even much more expensive laptops are often under.

hcrf would be fine here.

But Calman might take a bit of time for profile generation.

People used to laugh when we were expecting FHD on a $400 laptop.

My point, you never know. It never hurt to have higher expectation...room for improvement is always there.

Realistically no one is expecting this laptop to have a good screen though. Unless they lucked out by happenstance finding a decent panel for cheap somehow, but very unlikely.

I still have my laptop I bought from the Microsoft Store 5 years ago that I bought because of RFD Effect, and it basically just collects dust:
ms-store-650-50-gc-asus-zenbook-ux305ca ... d-1889197/

So no more impulse laptop buys for me.

Not sure it's the same. Progress is there, but calibrated laptop with full sRGB spectrum is much harder and costlier to achieve than a run of the mill LCD panel.
This one has FHD,but I doubt it will run smoothly 1080p content. It will also be VERY slow for website browsing, especially content-rich pages with videos. 500 HD graphics is from 2015. CPU is at 2009 specs and with only 4gb of ram, it basically a slow toy that will make you wait 1 minute for a task that even $400 laptop will do in about 5 seconds.

Yeah, if you have the money definitely spend more money on a faster laptop. But, if you absolutely cash strapped then this will be usable for people's basic computing needs.

I've never even heard of Win 10 S before I saw this post here.

"Streamlined for security and superior performance, Windows 10 in S mode exclusively uses Microsoft-verified apps from the Windows Store to keep you running fast and secure day in and day out. "

Basically, you can't install anything on it, unless its approved by MS for your "security"

Also, it has 5000 mAh battery. "Up to 9 hours*"
Yeah, good luck with that.
My last 2 phones had same size battery, I doubt laptop with 14" screen will run 9 hours on it.

Your phone probably also has a more powerful CPU then this laptop though!
