Glossy vs Matte

Recommended Posts

For straight CAD work, the matte is probably better. If you do any renderings or other color work, the glossy screen will give you better colors and blacker blacks.

I have a glossy screen MacBook and it's never been an issue. I also have a glossy screen on my 27" iMac and I have occasional issues with glare but am always able to solve the problem by closing a window shade or two.

I am really happy with the colors on my MBP's glossy screen. Surface reflections can be avoided by tilting the screen up.

My old Powerbook has a matte screen, and I always have to turn up the contrast and brightness on it - plus the colors look faded.

I recall struggling with the decision awhile, and I ultimately chose the glossy screen's constantly vivid colors and blacks, which overweighs the occasional surface reflection.
