Can't see screen when outdoors

I'm new to laptops and just bought my first-Lenovo IdeaPad Y510. I especially wanted to be able to use it outdoors or in the car wherever I am. But I cannot see the screen, cursor or anything to use it in sunlight. I also hate Vista, but that's another whole story. Do I need some kind of anti-glare screen or what? I have tried adjusting contrast etc. to no avail. Help!!

Re: Can't see screen when outdoors

Ya we all have the same issue..The only thing you can do is keep it in as much shade as possible or..Indoors...if its got to be out side try some shade and turn up the brightness but just keep a close eye on your Battery power! and if possible try a antiglare screen too..that might work  also!
