Choose the Right Notebook Screen
By Cisco Cheng
I’m buying a new notebook. I’m told I have two options for screen types, anti-glare and transflective. What’s the difference?
Choosing the right screen type when you pick a notebook is tricky. Anti-glare screens are made by laminating a matte surface layer to the LCD panel, and are ideal for working with documents. A transflective LCD has a smooth glossy finish, where the image appears brighter, with better contrast. Choose this type if you’re an avid video or photo editor, or plan on watching a lot of DVD movies on your laptop.
