It's not glossy and it's not as full a matte as I've seen. However it's just fine for me and my eyes. It's just a silly old HP dv6000 series. My older Compaq R3000 is neither glossy nor a full matte I've seen out there.
My rather new Netbook (Acer Aspire One) is almost a full gloss and is very easy for me to use.
For this area, shop and see what you like.
Hi, I want to buy a dell laptop. But i have a problem choosing the right display that fits my needs. As a student i am going to read and write lots of things with my laptop , not watching movies nor looking at pics. So i want a display that i can read on it for long hours without eye fatigue. Therefore, what kind of display do you recommend, matte or glossy ?
