Users petition Apple for anti-glare screens

If you're like me -- and by all accounts 75 percent of you are -- you don't like glossy screens on your notebooks. The reasons are obvious and have been enumerated on this blog ad nauseum, but suffice it to say, glare.

If you're like me -- and by all accounts 75 percent of you are -- you don't like glossy screens on your notebooks. The reasons are obvious and have been enumerated on this blog ad nauseum, but suffice it to say, glare.

The Queensland University of Technology has published health and safety considerations for Macs with high gloss screens in which they note:

Reflections and glare on high gloss monitor screens and their relation to the angle of the monitor screen, could cause the operator to adopt awkward postures when viewing the monitor screen and using related equipment.

Its recommendation?

Consider the purchase of other types of monitors which are not high gloss.

And they're not alone. Plenty of articles have been written about the safety and aesthetic reasons why glossy displays simply don't make sense on notebook computers.

If you're also in favor of Apple bringing back anti-glare notebooks be sure to visit and post a comment at the MacMatte blog. Photo: Digital Versus
