What equipment should I use for post viewing of photos from a session. In my studio clients will leave with prints.

My budget is $1000 to $1500 or slightly more.

Thanks for your input!! :)

  Hi Melissa,
For your price-range - I would suggest something like a 24 or 27" IMAC. Images look great and you can process/edit & print from it as well.
Laptops are OK but then you have calibration issues if you take it in & out of the studio.
Or you can buy a monitor and leave it at the studio & calibrate it so that when you plug in your laptop, it is ready to go.
Eizo monitors are excellent and so are the Apple Cinema Screens :)
Hope this helps,

  Thanks so much Carlton. I have received a grant for all of my equipment so I have a very large budget. Whatever I use will not need leave the studio or be used for editing. It will either need a way to load the pics (like a digital frame) or be connected to my network. I should have put that in my question but it was already too long. :) I plan to stay with a PC and not change to Mac.
