Hey everyone,

I'm just curious to know what people prefer to edit photos on a laptop: a matte or glossy screen? Is there an advantage of using one over the other for post processing? Or is it just a personal preference?

As others say, reflections from glossy screens are a nuisance.  If you are using the laptop only where there are no light sources behind you then it doesn't matter.  I have a Dell laptop with a glossy screen ('cos I had no choice) but I rarely use it in locations where I get reflections so it's no bother.
