Glossy vs. Anti-Glare Poll Results
Okay, we get the message. You've voted and the results are overwhelmingly in favor of the classic anti-glare screen. This is a landslide.
Here's how we view the market and usage scenario for the glossy screen models now only available on our Lenovo 3000 line: first, nearly every manufacturer supports a glossy screen. This technology is, in our opinion, aimed at the consumer who seeks a degree of sharpness in their display for viewing movies, working with images, and who is attracted to a sharp and shiny design experience.
As the comments point out, there are some downsides to glossy -- light reflectivity, propensity for displaying fingerprints. Anti-glare is popular with business users for a variety of reasons, but I think those reasons can be summed up as an intolerance for reflections in work environments where overhead lighting is the norm.
Stay tuned for a new poll this week.
