Why don't you like glossy screens?

An Apple Core reader emailed me about the oft-discussed issue of glossy screens and suggested that I post a new poll question to more accurately target the specific factor of them that users dislike -- namely the glare. The new poll question (below) more accurately reflects (pun intended) the concerns I have.

He also poses a question: If Apple could produce a screen that has the color richness of the current glossy screens but doesn't suffer from the glare that those screens do, would you still be opposed to it? Do you think the general public would be?

Personally, I'd be for any MacBook screen that doesn't have the wicked glare present on the current models. In fact, I'm even willing to give up a little richness and saturation to get it.

In my experience, engineers and product managers respond better to specific concerns/issues rather than general statements of dislike. That gives engineers a puzzle to solve and they like that. General statements of dislike just make them plug their ears.

I suggest you re-focus your critique to the real specific issue at hand and then we may be more successful at convincing Apple (and the engineers at the display manufacturers that Apple relies upon) to answer our concerns with an improved product.

Good suggestions.

So where to you stand? Answer the poll question and add your comments to the TalkBack.
