Laptop or tablet which you can read in FULL sun?

by PatrickP 23 replies
By any chance have you found a laptop or tablet which you can use in full sun? I have tried a few different ones and also used those sun screen/shields and non work in full sun for me.

    What your looking for simply doesn't exist. I'm sure that some sun/screen shields are better then others, so just keep trying one that works best. But in the end, there is only so much that can be done.

      You will end up frustrated and with eye problem by the end of this research.
      But this is the very first step of bringing the chance in technology.
      You are the hero...!

    I had a hard time trying to figure out the reason why you are looking for between a laptop or a tablet that you can read in full sun, since most of us here will not attempt to use laptops or tablets in full sun. I agree with what fellow warrior Jade here had stated if you are in a desert or something like that since you are searching for that device that you can view in full sun. Most of us here would prefer to work and use these devices inside our room, far away from the sun so we could work better.
    I think that to really answer your question is for you to look for an area wherein you are not under the full sun so you could read what is on the screen of your laptop or tablet even when you are outdoors. There are sun screens, as what Tcalp had said, but it's difficult to really point on to a product since we don't have any idea what really is your intention on looking for that kind of device.
    I have a question by the way, what are you trying to do and use laptop or tablet in full sun?

      Don't know why you find it so hard to understand why someone wants a tablet or laptop to work in the sun.

      One of the great advantages of laptops and tablets especially is the portability. The ability to get around and be able to attend to your important tasks witout having to be stuck in the office.

      I spend a lot of my time in Greece and it's pretty much (full) sunny here all the time. I'm sure many IMrs live in countries with extremes of sun.

      I have tried a few smartphones, notepads, tablets, netbooks of differing sizes and yet to find one that works well in the sun here.

      (In the UK generally not a problem but in places where the sun is generally more severe it's an issue)

      Even the shade is not that good for most unless you actually shade the screen heavily. Just sitting under canopy or similar means the ambient light in strong sun (reflection from ground/walls etc) is still very bright.

      So if you don't have the answer that's fine but don't knock the guy for asking the question.

    No laptop or tablet exist yet. Even if these devices are advertised as having the brightest screens in the market, it would still be difficult to work with them under the sun. Check the review sites to find out.

    I live in Marbella where we have about 300 days a year of sun. Best thing is to work inside to avoid the glare and skin cancer

    There is a tablet for you, it's called Adam (google it). it uses a technology called Pixel Qi (don't remember if it's written that way). You can turn light off, and use it with the sun (I believe without colors, but the quality of image is good).

      I can't say that I have ever heard of a laptop or tablet that you can read in full sun. I know that there are some anti sun glare protectors that you can put over your laptop screens but I don't know how well they work.

    I use an Acer laptop with an LED screen (not LCD) and I also have an anti-glare screen shield (can't remember where it came from).

    It's ok for working outside, although I usually try to stay in the shade. It's usable in the sun, although I can't work on it for long periods.

    EXACTLY Tony. Glad someone gets it

    I usually work outside if it isn't too hot and enjoy going to the beach as often as possible.

    For all those who say they work at home I am surprised by the number of people in this thread that don't understand why you wouldn't like to work at the beach. Common sense to me.

    BTW I will be going to Greece for a few weeks this winter and I wanted to bring something along which I can use in the sun.

    I have seen that a company is coming out with a tablet which used E-ink, the same technology that makes reading a Nook in full sunlight very easy.
