Why glare is a bad thing on a notebook

PC Magazine Labs decided to install Windows 7 (build 6801) on a new MacBook Pro and although it installed ok, things quickly went down hill after that.When I watched their video I couldn't get past how bad the glare is on these new machines, even indoors.

PC Magazine Labs decided to install Windows 7 (build 6801) on a new MacBook Pro and although it installed ok, things quickly went down hill after that.

When I watched their video I couldn't get past how bad the glare is on these new machines, even indoors. Check out the glare starting about 9 seconds into the clip, it's like a mirror. I don't think that I can tolerate that level of glare, but people tell me that it's ok and that "all you have to do is tilt the screen."

Glossy/glassy screens = glare and no one can convince me otherwise. Tell me about your thoughts on notebook glare in the Talkback.
