    how similar are the glossy screens on the new imac compared to the macbook? im seeing people are hating the new imac because of the glossy screen reflections etc.

    but using my macbook which has a glossy screen i have no problems using it in any light, including in direct sunlight when its inside, the only time it becomes difficult is using it outside in full sunlight.

    i dont see anybody using the imac outside, so dont see a real problem unless it is alot more glossy than the macbook? or am i missing something?

    The only reason i ask is because i look at getting the new imac and getting rid of my macbook.

    my advice is for you to go to the apple store and check one out for yourself. i had a macbook as well. and while i liked the glossy screen, i didn't like the colors it produced, especially the colors in ical. however, i saw one of the imacs earlier today, and they're definitely something to be wowed by. the colors were great, the brightness was excellent, and the imac was just stunning overall. it made me second guess my macbook pro purchase last month. :eek:
