Shiny screens seem to be okay

April 2007

Last few times I've been to a computer store I've noticed that more and more of the displays on laptops are of the ultra shiny sort.

Looking at them in the store, I couldn't imagine that they would be good to use since the mirror like surface does a great job of reflecting light and producing glare. The laptop I was looking at for my mom that we eventually got had one of these screens. I mentioned this to her before we bought it and figured we could return it if it was a problem.

Once I got it out of the store, I'm happy to report the screen was just fine to work with. Didn't have any problems with glare at all. I think this would be the case most of the time. Unless you happen to work in a place that has endless rows of overheard fluorescent light strips like a big box store.
