It seems as though most of the discussion involving glossy vs. matte has gone in circles about color saturation, contrast, the ability to move a laptop, the rigidity of glass, lighting in the room, performance outdoors, etc. But the one thing nobody has explained is why reflections themselves are a good thing to have on a laptop screen. I remember when CRT monitors went from being bulbous to more "flat" and the industry crowed about how these new flatter CRTs would have fewer reflections. So at least back then reflections were viewed as a negative. So can someone please tell me why reflections are desirable and not an unfortunate side effect? (I tried to get into this question in another thread, but perhaps I didn't frame the issue properly there.) Thanks.
