lets get one thing straight, i didnt make some sort of baseless accusation of NI. The information I got was straight from customer support and is confirmed by other members who also sent them the same question.
As to what rohan stated, that doesnt answer much for me. the lcd layer has the touch screen layer on it and thats the important layer. it is not matte but glossy and that confirms the first part of what I was told by "Jon." Now as far as its scratch resistance properties, Slashgear reported in their update two that it might scratch resistant as well but the quote itself is fragmented and doesnt state which layer is scratch resistant.
Ive sent NI another email asking them to specify this point of contention for me and will update you guys when I get an answer. If I'm wrong I'll openly admit it and apologize.
