I'm new on here and I have a doubt about which screen should work better to work with graphic design. I saved some money to buy an Imac for myself but I dont wanna spend all the money on the wrong screen.
A friend of mine have an Imac glossy and it reflects alot when theres a light in the background, Ive been reading about which one I should get but Im still confused.
If anyone works with graphic design, colors and photos please give me a tip about what I should do.

As far as I know, the iMac ships with a glossy screen. I don't believe you can purchase one with an anti-glare screen. There are third party after market products which reduce screen glare which you can buy separately.
The MacBook Pro series does offer an anti-glare screen as an option ($50.00) on the 15" and larger models, perhaps that's what you're thinking of?

Hey.Thanks for your reply.
I can also purchase Imac with anti-glare screen on the apple store. I just dont know which kind of screen should work better to work with graphic design.
Ive talked to a few people about it but not designers. Perhaps I should just take the anti-glare one.

I do design and have the glossy screen. There was no option at the time. Colours are fine and I have the monitor turned slightly so the reflection is not in my face.
If you can get Matt I would. If not no big deal just turn it slightly.
