The color numbers in your image will be the same on any system running a recent version of Photoshop. Unfortunately numbers do not guarantee accurate colors or neutral grays in your prints. What assists with *that* is accurate ICC profles of all the devices involved, so you can trust what you see on the monitor, and can get different printers to speak the same color language. This is assuming an RGB image; if your image is in outputCMYK, then it gets a bit more complex, as you then need to simulate one output device on another... C.
