Hi all,
I recently bought a laptop for school, but I really can't stand how glossy the screen is. I am thinking of returning it for one with a matte screen, but I am having trouble finding what I am looking for. Hopefully someone can help!

1. What is your budget?
$700 (could go higher but would really prefer to stay at $700 or lower)

2. What is the size of the notebook that you are considering?
12.5-14"

3. What screen resolution do you want?
Doesn't really matter.

4. Do you need a portable or desktop replacement laptop?
Portable

5. How much battery life do you need?
Not terribly important, although more would be better.

6. Do you want to play games with your laptop? If so then please list the games that you want to with the settings that you want for these games. (Low,Medium or High)?
No.

7. What other tasks do you want to do with your laptop? (Photo/Video editing, Etc.)
Mostly word processing, crunching numbers and other school related stuff. Also watching movies and tv shows.

8. How much storage (Hard Drive capacity) do you need?
Doesn't really matter.

9. If you are considering specific sites to buy from, please post their links.
Open to anything legit.

10. How long do you want to keep your laptop?
At least 2-3 years.

11. What kind of Optical drive do you need? DVD ROM/Writer,Bluray ROM/Writer,Etc ?
DVD writer.

12. Please tell us about the brands that you prefer to buy from them and the brands that you don't like and explain the reasons.
No real preference.

13. What country do you live in?
USA.

14. Please tell us any additional information if needed.
I want a non-glossy screen! Other than that I just want a generally decent quality laptop that will last for a few years and not be completely frustrating.

Thanks in advance for all your help!

A "matte screen" is a LCD screen that is not glossy. Meaning it does not reflect like a mirror. Matte screen reflects light that hits the screen, but it is diffused and there are no reflections. The Lenovo Edge has a glossy screen.

In the below picture, laptop on the left has a glossy screen. The laptop on the right has a matte screen.
