Meh, Just get a big square of microfiber cloth (that's what they're all made of, it's the same thing you're supposed to use to clean your glasses). Unless that shaggy mat is like 10$ it's a rip off lol.

To be very honest, I'd hold off on getting one until you get your laptop. Lenovo Ideapads, note entirely sure if they have a matte or glossy screen, but even if they did have a glossy one, I doubt it will be a super glossy screen like Dell's, I hate the reflections from Dell's.

You could always get the protectors after your laptop, use if for couple weeks and then decide if you really need one or not. Just my 2 cents :)

I just want it so theres some protection and i dont want any scratches on it. Just a little protection since i dont have more then 1 year warranty its only like 30 bucks anyways. I sent an email to photo den cause i cannot get the exact measurements from lenovo on the screen size all i know is its 15.6 widescreen. And yea its a glossy screen.

Hello,
My eyes hurt from my new Sony Vaio laptop due to reflections. Would a ViewGuard Anti-Glare Privacy Filter solve my problem?

I'm looking for a Screen protector for my 17" Laptop Screen, what are some good options?
