    Just curious, I am planning to upgrade my 2010 MBP to the newer 13" rMBP model. I tested couple of it at an Apple Store and it is not that bad, but I want to know if the screen is viewable if it is under direct sun light? I often need to bring my laptop with me wherever I go, and I can hardly read my screen if it is sunny outside, and it often causes headache to me and my clients. I asked couple of the Apple Genius, and they said it is very readable for the current model, but I want to hear from the users opinion as well, so any comments are appreciated. Thanks!

    Maybe look for a static cling matte screen protector to help cut down on the glare?
