    the highly reflective bezel remains reflective when the rest of the screen is on causing some eye strain i've found.

    I imagine what they thought was that if it works great on the larger displays it would work on the smaller scale. But the screen is so small it is distracting.

    I don't want to be negative and I imagine it's a minor issue, but it's worth noting.

    you could probably get a screen cover/antiglare filter and cut a hole in it to cover just your bezel

    not a great solution but it would work

    Yes i'm serious. I have a a whole bunch of these Apple laptops and desktops and this new one has some odd issues.

    I never had a problems with any of them but this one has some serious design changes. Also I'm having some problems with a wonky trackpad that i'm pretty sure is software related.

    The point with this bezel thing is that it's always reflective. The Air has a glossy screen but when it's on (when your actually looking at it) it's not reflective.

    However on the Glassbook the bezel remain reflective.

    with a much larger screen this wouldn't be a problem do to peripheral vision limits.

    Mind you this isn't really a problem so much much as a poor desigh desision that if feel I should point out.
