Default Anybody heard of a laptop that can be used ....

in bright sunlight? My wife wants an e-reader (most likely a Sony). Then I talked her into a laptop instead of her desktop. Then we got to thinking, why not get a laptop that she can D/L her digital books to, as well as use it for general PC type use, cruising the web, some online homework, etc. She wants to be able to sit outside and read during lunch, etc., but I think a regular laptop would be difficult to see in bright sun. So, my question is: does anyone know of any laptops that would be usable outside during the day, in bright sun? I haven't even begun looking yet, I thought I'd get some input from this site first. Thanks for your help, Anthony

It takes the glare of the sun off the screen.
