I think its all down to personal preferences. My screens at home are Matte whilst the office screen here (non-graphics related btw) is glossy.
I do a VERY small amount of post-production here on the glossy screen but for me, I see no advantages of one over the other.
I have a laptop with a 17" high res glossy screen and it serves it's purpose for viewing photos and uploading to the internet, however when I want to send images to print I process them on a colour calibrated monitor as you cannot get the colour accuracy with a laptop that you can with a good monitor plus I get too much reflection on the screen. Dell do a good range with decent high definition screens, Inspiron or XPS just don't get sucked into buying the add-ons, all you need is a good graphics card, memory and hard drive, money you save could go to an IPS monitor should you require colour accuracy.
Hope this is of use.
thanks for the advice probably buy one from pcspecialist
All depends on the ambient light of where you'll be using it.....Glossy screens can reflect a lot of light, especially daylight, whereas a Matt screen tends not to be as bad. If it's a laptop, I'd recommend a matt screen......
I have made my mind up,laptop with matte screen from pcspecialist.A good saving over Dell.Thanks for the advice
