my problem is that i draw on a laptop and a desktop and the colors are not the same on both computers. what is the best way to calibrate my 2 computers?

You could set them up side by side and calibrate them to a chart like in this guide.

Or you could get some software and a colorimeter that will do it automatically between the two systems. I've got a Spyder setup at home that works alright, there are other products on the market that perform the same task.

It comes down to how much you want to spend, or how much you don't want to spend. Cheers!
