Have any of you used a 'glossy' screen yet? Are they 'better' than the regular screens? I'm considering a 'glossy' screen, but I've only seen a couple in stores.

Pros and Cons?

Most LCD type screens over here are the glossy type - maybe it's a fashion now. 'Apparent' advantage include clearer and brighter pictures and a much better view from the side.

My IT guy has a new Mac laptop with a "glossy" screen and it looks absolutely awesome! He's trying to talk me into buying a machine like that.

Here is a site where Mac fanatics are going "head to head" about the "glossy" screens. Interesting.

Pros and Cons?

Colors are a little brighter and richer. And, they seem to allow cleaning a little more easily.

I just recieved a new HP 17" laptop with a glossy screen. Indoors with no glare it is beautiful. I absolutely cannot use it outdoors or in my car in the daylight. It is like looking into a black mirror and I can barely make out any of the screen. Indoors, reflections from outdoors, lamps, and other light sources interfere with viewing the screen. Laptops are supposed to be able to be used almost anywhere. I can use my older Toshiba with very little problem except for direct sunlight. I am returning the HP tomorrow. I purchased the HP from Circuit City and nowhere in thier advertisement did I see any mention of a glossy screen. Old Man Beaver
