My girlfriend's dad is buying her a netbook for Christmas and she doesn't want one with a reflective screen, but her old man has his heart set on buying a particular Acer model (can't remember which one) that has a SuperBright blah blah reflective screen.
How effective are the after-market covers/coatings that are available? Do they significantly reduce the quality of a screen? Are they comparable to having just bought a netbook with a non-glare screen in the first place?
Obviously the ideal choice would be "just get one that has an anti-glare screen to start off with", but this choice is out of our hands now so I'd appreciate help from anyone with any experience of such things!
Does anyone have any good recommendations?
