Maybe just switch to decaf any way caffine is horrible on your nervous system *sips Mountain Dew* uhh anyway. No, calibration is pretty important especially for print or video work. The issues is most Mac users use Mac monitors which are much better than your typical cheap CRT. One problem I noticed is that alot of CRT are just dark, with the highest contrast and brightness.
I recommend Sony, Viewsonic, LG or any other high quality monitor. They will give the most range in brightness.
One thing I have noticed is that TV and print tends to be alot darker than what you see on your screen so be sure to correct for this if you want a true vision of what is going to be on your final output.
PS Maya, though dismal and slow, is stable on mac from what I have seen.
