    Which do you prefer?

    I have a glossy screen on my Sony VAIO.

    I prefer matte screens, though.

    They both have their place, but I prefer matte.

    Matte, I don't like the glare and reflections of glossy.

    my wife's Toshiba and the Powerbook are both Glossy, with the HP (my work laptop) being matte...

    The Glossy screens sure are *sharp* and *crisp* looking, but the glare can be distracting...

    As long as they work, and don't have coffee, run N coke stains, or fingerprints on em I could care less!

    CLEAN is what matters most to me I guess.

    I prefer glossy. For my situation glare isn't an issue so I prefer the better looking screen.
