thanks for your reply. Just as a test i tried to rerun the calibration
dispcal -v -y l -q m -t 6500 -g 2.2 -o TargetA

The result did change a bit but not in the way the original software
does. You can download the result profile here:

That's probably a good thing though. In my experience with the Spyder
software, it doesn't achieve the same level of accuracy as Argyll CMS
(the former does fewer iterations than the latter).

During the calibration i got a few errors of the following form:
Failed to meet target 1.200000 delta E, got worst case 0.072355

Those are harmless and usually occur near black where the delta E
thresholds get low.

[ As a side note, you may want to make sure the laptop isn't dimming or
otherwise altering the output of the backlight while measuring ]
