    How is this any different then any other laptop that uses glossy screens? I think the majority of laptops now use glossy.

    I think its common sense that you need to ensure you have good posture and position to avoid issues, regardless of what computer you use.

    Oh Please. It's not like Apple is intentionally "damaging or changing the posture" of it's consumers. I thought this was going to be something like the material was poisonous or something.

    That's why most business laptops don't use glossy.

    Laptops are a funny thing. Whether you use a glossy screen or not, the viewing position is terrible for the neck and shoulders, yet everyone wants one (myself included). The best solution is to use an external display most of the time, especially during prolonged usage, and use the laptop screen when on the road.

    You are exactly wrong. Apple is trying to damage our posture. Next year they're releasing the "iComfy Chair" which helps your posture. So it makes sense that they're trying to damage our posture as of right now so they can sell many chairs in the near future.
