    Hi guys,

    Want to spend more time outdoors, but my current 2 laptops are impossible to read. Even though 1 of them have anti glare matte display(thinkpad x120e) - i still get eye strain and headaches... And seems like glossy are easier on eyes(at least for me) than anti glare ones...

    Any suggestions?

    I've read lots of good feedback on macbook air screen for outside(sun) work. Even though it has relatively glossy screen.... I am thinking of buying one and installing windows 7.

    Would like to buy windows native laptop though, but seems like macbook air has best screen for outdoors.(even comparing to macbook pro and glossy and antiglare). Simply easier on eyes and has less glare. Samsung series 9, asus zenbook, sony vaio are great ones, but also have worse screen.

    Need smng small - 13"-14". Budget: $1000-$1500.

    thx!
