What is your opinion on display types? Glossy or matte, which is the way to go?
I’m looking to purchase a new laptop (my circumstances does not allow me to procure a desktop setup) and have begun filtering on the following:
- RAM (≥8 GB),
- processor (i5/i7 from 2016 (arbitrary) and later),
- screen size (≥15,6"),
- IPS display.
I am looking at the storage configurations, but that is not really a deal breaker since most have SSD anyway, and I still do standalone backups.
However, when it comes to display surface, the right path eludes me.
- How annoying would it be to use a glossy display, when it comes to reflections?
- How “off” is the color and contrast of a matte display?
- Could a half-way (“hybrid”) type display be the way to go?
I am using a 14" laptop with matte display today and I never knew it to be off.
