    Which to get, glossy or matte? leaning tords the matte. looked in the macshack and only cons of the glossy are cant see it outside and a pain to keep clean. Any one here have a preference?

    I've had matte screens on all my laptops, so i'd be inclined to try glossy.

    Both screens are much brighter than previous generations so outdoor use shouldnt be too much of a problem. The glossy screen does get reflections, you can try them out in a store first...

    haven't compared them, but I love the high gloss of our fujitsu. It makes every thing pop and gets tons of attention

    I personally hate gloss screens, even tho the color seems to be more poppy like Viper said, you get more glares and can be distracting

    depends on what you want. Do you want to show the photos to clients and impress them on the job? If so, glossy might be the answer as it makes everything extra sharp and bright, so things look really good.

    If you are going to do any real editing on it though, you probably want the matte screen as its going to give you a more realistic look at the photo and allow for a more accurate post process.
