I'm now on my final stage of computer equipment (toys) purchases,
with the last item I'm considering getting is a laptop/notebook.
I've been looking at the Sony S serise VAIOs with XBright displays.
I went down to MicroCenter to get a hands on experience with them
and what struck me was that the XBright display has a shiny look
to it. In other words, it reflects a lot of light so ambient glare
becomes an issue. At least I think it does. For example. I as I
sat down with the VAIO on my lap, and the screen tilted back so
that it faced me, I could notice the glare of the overhead neon
lights reflect in the display thus making it a bit difficult
to read/see the screen. Has anyone else experienced this problem
or noticed it with these XBright displays? If it weren't for that
particular problem, I would have gone ahead and gotten one of
those notebooks...

Cheers. Steve.
