    Good PC, but disappointed by the panel

    I don't know if it's the general quality of the slab on this model or if I've got it wrong, but the whites are yellowish and despite my efforts to set an ICC profile to correct the problem, it doesn't work.

    => Refund request and return.
    It's a shame because this PC is light (2.2 kg) and powerful.
    I think I'll spend a bit more money on a LED panel for the next one.
