How off would using just the mic built into my laptop actually be?? Would it give me a relatively accurate model if I'm being lazy and trying to avoid buying a mic? Just curious. Thanks

Wouldn't be accurate. If you want to save money buy a 25$ SPL meter off eBay and run the test tones. Get you 90% there.

I have a question, Whats the difference between the umm6 and the SL pro calibrated umm6 for money? i understand its more accurate but if you opt for the standard mic does that mean you wont be able to measure your room correctly? is it that inacurate? I want to get a mic but saving 30 bucks helps me too

Ya, the basic mic is fine. The CSL calibrated one gives you mic polars and calibration to 5hz. Also more confidence in the calibration. Dayton has had funny cals in the past. So depends what you want to do with it. Not many people use the polars, but they can be useful for someone like me designing a speaker.
