Before you get angry, yes I have researched this issue. I have read countless threads on Macrumors and other info. I am going to invest in a new monitor for my MBP. I am not a photographer (light hobby though) or designer. But I will be using clamshell mode so I wanted a good monitor. 1) IPS is much recommended correct? It will produce better color at more angles, correct? 2) Matte vs Glossy screen. I was surprised by the stark arguments here on this issue. Both sides claim that each screen is superior. Which will truly provide more accurate colors? I love my MB's screen and Apple seems to favor glossy. Also, I have a small matte screen that I am using now. It is okay, but it seems kind of filmy/grainy if you look at it with a white background (like on macrumors). Is one really a preferable option? Please don't be annoyed. I don't have the money to waste, these are genuine concerns. Thank you so much!!
