In addition to receiving efficient and health-friendly profiles, by buying LaptopMedia's products you also support the development of our labs, where we test devices in order to produce the most objective reviews possible.

Office Work

Office Work should be used mostly by users who spend most of the time looking at pieces of text, tables or just surfing. This profile aims to deliver better distinctness and clarity by keeping a flat gamma curve (2.20), native color temperature and perceptually accurate colors.

Design and Gaming

This profile is aimed at designers who work with colors professionally, and for games and movies as well. Design and Gaming takes display panels to their limits, making them as accurate as possible in the sRGB IEC61966-2-1 standard for Web and HDTV, at white point D65.

Health-Guard

Health-Guard eliminates the harmful Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) and reduces the negative Blue Light which affects our eyes and body. Since it’s custom tailored for every panel, it manages to keep the colors perceptually accurate. Health-Guard simulates paper so the pressure on the eyes is greatly reduced.

HP 470 G9 in-depth review

The 470 G9 has always been a laptop that arrives at a slightly higher price than everyone expects. However, its strongest advocate is the fantastic display it has historically arrived with. It has to be said that HP still offers the device with a 1600x900 TN panel as a base option, and a Full HD IPS unit with unenviable color coverage as a compromise solution. On the other hand, it always gets the latest hardware available. In this case, it is the 15W Alder Lake processors. And if you want the large 17.3-inch display to play games, you can configure the laptop with the NVIDIA GeForce MX[...]
