I do a lot of field photography for work and because of the travel, work exclusively with a laptop. I've been happy with the color matching between my Epson 3800 prints and the Sony GDM-F520 monitor I've been using, but when I heard a local store was closing and selling off their Apple Cinemaview displays I though there might be an opportunity to update my setup to an LCD monitor. (At this point I should say I use a color managed workflow, calibrating my monitor and generating profiles with Optix XR and Monaco EZColor. My laptop is an IBM T60P with an ATI Mobility FireGL discrete graphics chipset (256 MB). The ATI output is VGA, not DVI.) I took my laptop to the store to see what the display would look like and found that after trying various adapters, which seem to fit fine, the salesman could not get any image at all on the Apple. I also wanted to look at the NEC 2690wuxi but figured I would have the same problem. After this long-winded explanation here's my question; is there an adapter that will allow my video card to work with DVI monitors and if so is it a bad idea to do that for color-critical work? Should I just wait until I replace this computer (which could be a few years since I'm pretty happy with its performance) and not worry about replacing my CRT until then? I should also point out I'm not having any issues with the Sony, except for its size and weight (its actually warping my desk). Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
