They Say:

•Air gap between glass and LCD panel might be good for repairability, but it makes for inferior color, contrast, and outdoor visibility

Do you guys that received your Air's find this to be true?

Rubbish, read the displaymate screen shoutout article, the Air screen uses IGZO technology which is substantially better than the screens in any of the former iPads in all respects.

It's a mystery why they don't optically laminate the screen. Would make the device even thinner, and lend the display lower reflectivity, higher contrast, colors, etc. They do it on all their other product lines.

This comment out of context is inflammatory

He just was making an observation, that is valid but inconsequential

Given the forum's penchant for overreaction, you will have succeeded in starting a flame war

Which is fine. Keep up the good work :)

was'nt my intention, why would gizmodo do a shootout with a display not even out in the wild yet? 8.9 HDX isn't out yet, and when it comes out wonder if it will have the blue fringe issue like the 7"
