glossy screens
Authored by: jms1 on Oct 23, '08 08:08:46AM

Aside from the fact that I just bought my MacBook Pro eight months ago, and it still feels new to me... I looked at the glossy and matte screens in the Apple store when I bought it, and the glossy screen seemed to pick up fingerprints and throw off too much glare from lights. I have used my laptop while riding down the highway (as a passenger) and the last thing I need is for my laptop screen to cast a glare into the eyes of somebody driving a car (especially if it's the car in which I am a passenger.)

That's the dumbest thing I've heard in weeks. How would your laptop screen cast a glare into the eyes of the driver?

That would require you to be sitting on the hood of the car, with the laptop off to the side of yourself so that the sun (which would have to be behind you and the driver) shines so incredibly bright that it reflects off a black screen, through the windshield and into the driver's eyes.

I guess you have the magic laptop from Willy Wonka's factory!
