View Full Version : How does the MBP glossy screen behaves when performing on stage?

I just want to know if the MacBook Pro's glossy screen doesn't have to many problems with stage lightning when performing.

Thanks in advance!

The cheap solution, and perhaps the best, is to get a laptop hood/shade.

Even with non-glossy displays, these things can be indispensable in certain cases because no matter what, uneven and inconsistent lighting can be a SERIOUS headache. As well, you'll save on battery and backlight-life because you won't be battling it out with external light.

If you're on stage you probably can plug your MacBook Pro to a power source, right?
In that case just max out the brightness and there will no problem, i think this problem is overrated or at least i underrate it, at home i have the brightness on auto, which basically has it at 50% without a problem

Not really an issue for most gigs as you tend to be lit from the front...

Thanks for your replies!

I've ordered a new MBP 15" - Glossy :)
