That line of logic also requires that the display, the ambient lighting, and the various color/output settings be calibrated to the output device — such as the photographer in the video who apparently made his own prints using his own printer.
Unfortunately, for graphic design purposes, unless you’re working in prepress at a printing company, that across-all-devices calibration isn’t practical. What is practical is buying a good-quality display that can be relied upon and that you’re used to using. In addition, color accuracy requires working with a good printing company that cares about quality.
The old CRT days of computer monitors being wildly off in one direction or another are a thing of the past. The out-of-the-box color of good, higher-end digital displays falls well within the degree of variation between one printer and the next, which makes trying to calibrate one’s display to a point somewhere within those variations an exercise in futility.
Besides, viewing something on a display is never, ever the same as viewing printed materials. Even when viewing CMYK color on an electronic display, you only see a CMYK simulation shown to you in a reduced-gamut RGB. Good color matching between a display and print is doable. Fine-tuning beyond good isn’t practical (or even possible) — especially when you’re not calibrating it with the output device.
The only realistic way designers have for nearly spot-on color matching is to use the same color matching system as the printer — typically Pantone. That way, the color in your Pantone swatch book will match the formula the printer uses to mix the inks or the lookup tables in the digital printers.
Apple’s out because you don’t want a Mac, I assume. Eliminating Dell or HP from consideration is a mistake, though. A bad anecdotal experience with one computer doesn’t mean the entire brand is faulty. Different brands use customized cases, but they’re all mostly built from the same interchangeable parts inside.
Some brands specialize in using cheaper, off-the-shelf components, while others specialize in using higher-end, more expensive, off-the-shelf parts. Other brands, such as HP and Dell, sell models that span everything from the cheap stuff to the high-end with more customized features and hardware. More than anything, it boils down to how much you want to spend to get the good components as opposed to the less expensive, not-so-reliable ones.
