    Anyone use glasses with high gloss?

    Do sunglasses count? I don't wear eyeglasses. I would be really surprised it were somehow the case that light reflects from your eyeglasses onto the screen in a way that actually has any impact.

    Unless, of course, you are looking into the sun and angling your head in such a way to direct light onto your screen. But, that will blind you, and then it really wouldn't matter what kind of screen you had.

    As for the screen reflecting onto your glasses, I suppose it would, but since you can't see your glasses from the standpoint of a third party, unless you loan them to a friend and have him use the computer, then you won't know. Of course, without your glasses you cannot see your friend, so it is again a moot point :)

    Never noticed anything like the problem you're describing.

    I'm typing this on my new 13" with obviously a glossy screen and my glasses on and there's no glare.
