Default Why is this lap top screen so reflective?

We recently bought a sony VPCCV 190x laptop, for my wife to watch movies. She enjoys watching movies on it, but she finds it difficult to work with, because the surface of the screen is so mirror like it becomes distracting.
Why is this the case? None of our other computer or laptop screens are so shiny. The name of this monitor is 'Full HD VAIO premium display'.

The high gloss aids in movie clarity however in high light environments such as work space it can be too reflective. Its a home user entertainment feature that detriments its abilities as a work laptop
