Specs: Windows XP
the glass screen the laptop i want to buy acts like a mirror and in a bright room, reflects my image and all that is behind me. my dell has a matte screen and there is no reflection. does mac have an external screen to put over the screen?

Turn up your screen brightness is the easiest option.

thanks....that is definitely the easiest fix....i will try that before i buy it. is there an external cover available that 'mattes' the screen and takes the shiny glare away? i have to figure this out before i buy it...it is a big enough challenge to dive back into the mac world ;-0

see mac's are to shiny, if turning the brightness up to full still dont work then try this but last year with my laptop even at full brightness out side there was still a lot of glare but if your in the sun you will get it no matter what. plus avoid going out side in the summer with a laptops as bugs like to get under the screen :( so annoying having a small black mark on the screen from a bug that dies under there. anti glare cover here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/?ie=UTF8&...

thanks for the great reply....you are helping me decide to purchase it or not. i live in costa rica and my office is all glass and very bright. NOTHING helps a shiny screen! and blackout curtains just hide my gorgeous views!! so, the mac may not be for me :-) thanks again for your help....
