I have been trying to find a laptop or a monitor that is viewable in direct sunlight. Years back, some manufacturers offered a trans-reflective screen that actually used the sun's light to create a bright, clear screen. Does anyone know of manufacturers who offer that technology or know of any recent improvements. My use will be on a boat so the product also needs to handle vibration.

Anti-glare screen filters:

For vibration, I would use some thick, dense foam insulation
Cut some squares and glue them to the bottom while taking care not to block and vent holes

A simple anti-glare screen ought to do the job.
