Anyone have a Flex 2 15" with 1080p anti-glare screen?

Right now I have a lenovo twist with a glossy display and my only reference for compairson. The only flex 2 15" model I see with a 1080p display has an anti-glare screen.

 

In general, the flex models seem less expensive than a yoga for example and the yoga has a 13.3" screen. So...I have two questions for someone who owns (or has seen) the flex 2 15" display. I'm wondering:

 

1. Does flex 2 15" model still have an IPS panel with good viewing angles?

 

2. Does the anti-glare screen significantly reduce clarity, contrast and vibrancy when compared to the glossy displays? My twist glossy panel is very crisp, clear and bright.

 

I'm asking mainly because I will also use the flex to watch videos and I would like the colors and clarity to be somewhat good. I'm sure the anit-glare screen is fine for Microsoft Office (and other business software). I don't do any graphics work, just looking at pictures and videos. I'd rather not watch videos on a dull looking display.

 

Thanks very much,

 

Vincent

Re: Anyone have a Flex 2 15" with 1080p anti-glare screen?

I tried to delete this but I don't see how.

 

I don't need this question answered anymore because I found a flex model at office depot. I ordered it this morning because they give me 14 days to return it if I don't like it and they don't charge a restocking fee. It's very good that Lenovo doesn't have the same return policy. I'd probably order a number of things I don't really need, fall in love with them and wind up spending way too much money on things I don't need.

 

It's also a bit cheaper -- $600 for:

 

Flex 2 15.6" 1080p display

4th Gen i5

6 GB Ram

1TB Hard disk

DVD optical drive

 

Seems inexpensive (if it's truly good quality). Very curious to see what you get for $600. (My lenovo twist cost $992 and it only has a 12.5" display). So...I'm not expecting much. I'm just looking for a backup laptop in case of an emergency. My desktop monitor and some hard disks are getting old. I'd like to be able to do something breaks.
