Default Matte Screen [95% NTSC GAMUT COLOR]?

What's the difference between a matte screen with 95% ntsc gamut color, a regular matte screen and a glossy screen? I know there's differences in colors but is it a big difference that I should spend $200 more on?

Given the awful screens that ship on most laptops I feel any upgrade you can get is generally worthwhile.

Anandtech performs very detailed tests on the color accuracy, brightness, etc so you may want to see if they have tested the model you are looking at.

AMD Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition : Asus M4A89GTD PRO : Corsair 550VX
G.SKILL Ripjaws 4x2gb DDR3 1600 : MSI Geforce GTX 770 2gb : Antec 300
OCZ Agility 2 60gb SSD (OS) : SanDisk Ultra 120gb SSD (Apps) : Crucial M500 240gb (Steam) : Win 8.1 Pro 64bit
2x Samsung 2494LW & 1x Dell U2312HM Eyefinity

Lenovo ThinkPad X220 : Core i5 2410M : 12.5" 1366x768 IPS LED display : Intel 320 Series 120gb SSD

Samsung Galaxy Note 3 stock 4.3 : Nexus 7 2 stock 4.4
