Anti-Glare Matte Laptops 10/19/11

If you are like me and spend most of your day in front of a computer, you know how nice it is to have a matte finish. Briefly, a matte finish display reduces glare from other light sources, especially natural light. When turned off, an anti-glare matte display looks dark with little or no reflection. Contrast that with today's ultra bright displays that when turned off look like a mirror. This super reflectivity can lead to eye strain and headaches for some people.

Here is the list of matte anti-glare laptops for the week of 10/19/11. More details for all models. I have also found Dell offerings and added them to the list. Next time I'll try to add HP machines.

Apple
As always, Apple provides the best laptops on the market. All systems come with Mac OS X but thanks to Bootcamp, can run Windows just fine.

15 inch Macbook Pro - $1799. 15 inch anti-glare display. Quad Core Intel Core i7, 4GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, 1440x900 resolution. 5 lbs.

17 inch Macbook Pro - $2499. 17 inch anti-glare display. Quad Core Intel Core i7, 4GB RAM, 500 GB Hard Drive, 1920x1200 resolution. 6.6 lbs. The screen resolution can be tough on middle aged eyes for this machine.
