I am considering getting the new 16 inch MacBook Pro M1 Max. I would like to know if the screen is fine for getting first rate prints. I am used to the IMac 2017 which has allowed me to get excellent prints—that is to say I can get the print to match what I see on the screen. I would think with calibration the laptop’s screen could work fine for proofing and printing, but I have noticed that people often combine a laptop with a large external screen and while I’d love to do that too, I would like to avoid the expense if the printed results are just as good. Thank you.

He is not choosing an icc-profile because you cannot choose an icc-profile. You can choose one of Apple’s “presets” and change that (like he shows), but these “presets” are not icc-profiles.

Thanks so much for the link Johan. From what I see here it looks like it won’t work with a new MBP. But maybe there is a work-around method. I’ll look into it!
I think the answer given by Apple in the link is ”no”.

Another way to use that old iMac is with software that uses a network connection to let one computer extend its desktop on the display of another computer. Duet Air is one solution, if you’re OK paying $19.99 a year. I have not tried it. Duet started out as a way to let a Mac use an iPad as a second display, then they expanded that capability to Macs and PCs.

(Note that I am not talking about a common VNC solution, because those are for the different problem of using one computer to control another.)

That might work. I didn’t know that Duet now also works with computers. I have only used it with an iPad.
