Well, I actually prefer glossy screens. It is a compromise I guess.

With a glossy screen it reflects light (which is a pain), but since they are specular reflections you can at least avoid them by judicious orientation of the screen (not too difficult with a portable, after all, more difficult with a TV).

A matt screen also reflects and you will have difficulty avoiding it since the reflection is scattered in all directions. However, the reflcetion is diffuse on account of it being scattered, so perhaps it is less annoying (although on my TV it is just as annoying).

For me at least, any reflection - scattered or specular - is a pain, but there is little chance to avoid a scattered reflection. So on balance I would rather take my chances with a glossy screen. And it has the bonus of better image quality due to its inherently greater visual contrast.
