    Glossy tends to look a little more vibrant, but is really bad for glare if you're in direct light (especially sunlight). Anti-glare obviously lacks the vibrant sheen of the former, but is easier to see if you're in an extremely well-lit environment (or outside). You really can't go wrong with one or the other, so it's really a matter of opinion. For what it's worth, my laptop is a glossy.

    I have glossy which gives a lovely realistic picture but can be difficult to see in bright light conditions, especially outdoors but I think this disadvantage is small compared to having the dull anti-glare screen.

    Get some small black stockings/tights and strech it over the exhibit screen. in case you ever performed with them, you recognize that when streched they're sparkling. You exhibit screen would be a tad darker, yet no longer almost as undesirable because it sounds. Plus, you will no longer screw up your exhibit screen! :-)
