    I always wanted to know why when I view an LCD screen straight-on, the image is crisp and bright. However, when viewing from either side or from above or below, the picture fades and is unwatchable. This even happens on the new iMac 21.5 LCD. You'd think with all that technology that annoying problem would be fixed. Also, the glossy screen has a terrible glare; why don't they put a coating on the screen for anti-glare? It is so annoying to see reflections on the LCD. At a cost of $1500, you'd think they would make improvements.

    Glossy screen's have better colour and contrast than matte screens do - this is what Apple classes as an improvement. Many people welcome the glossy screens, and you can always get a film to make it matte. You can't make a matte screen glossy.
