Hello -
I'm new to Aperture 3, and will be using it with an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.53 MacMini and a 2005 Apple 20" Cinema Display (with CCFL backlight).
I'd appreciate recommendations for a monitor calibrator with the best quality/cost ratio.
Thanks!

An Eyeone Display 2 is an excellent choice.

I just purchased the X-Rite EyeOne Display 2 a couple of weeks ago.
Using with MacBook Pro 2.66 8GB DDR3 (June 2009) & LED Cinema Display (24" flat panel).
Works great! Prints from the Epson 3880 match the monitor.
Had the Huey Pro, however I get much better results from the EyeOne Display 2.

You might look into the ColorMunki Photo before buying the EyeOneD2 (both are from X-Rite).  I think it is a little more money (I got one new for c. $300 US after a $50 rebate they were offering a month or so ago), and I can't remember my exact decision path, but it will provide printer and paper profiles as well as monitor profiles.  I had a little trouble getting it set up (MBPro, 3 different second monitors), but one round w. tech support and I was good to go.  I can't compare it to anything but the built-in calibration in OS X.  The ColorMunki works very well.

Thank you! I'll look into this too to find out which is best for my needs.
