What's going on with all the glossy screens on laptops??? I've been wondering this for a while. The folks at the local Best Buy and Apple Store can't give me an answer. Is it a fad, better for designers, a marketing deal, or a cheaper way to make a screen?
I told the Apple store salesman that I had a problem with the unbelievably glossy screens. I was then directed to the Macbook Pros and was told for $100 more I could have it changed to matte. I was then showed one of the reduced gloss screens. Not near as reflective as the glossy ones, but it's not matte either.
Just wondering if it's just me or has anyone else noticed this.
My old Powerbook G4 has a matte screen. And my Eeepc 1000HE, that came in the mail from Amazon, has a matte screen (a pleasant surprise as I was expecting glossy). And the Toughbook CF-27 purchase from ebay has a matte screen. I guess I'm hooked on matte screens.
