    I'm assuming that this is HP's marketing term for "glossy screen", but a quick Google search didn't definitively answer that.

    It is indeed. If HP says something along the lines of Ultra Brightview, it means that there is also more backlighting.

    No, tis not true. HP has been using BrightView long before LEDs made it into laptop LCDs. It's just a glossy coating. Back then, Ultra BrightView meant they added a second CCFL for extra brightness, although it typically came with a max resolution of 1440x900.

    Case in point: One of HP's first laptops to have an LED display was the EliteBook 6930p, in which it was called Illumi-Lite, not BrightView.

    Yes, marketing jargon. It's their proprietary set of terms that could mean something or nothing at all. All those terms (regardless of manufacturer) depends on what it's compared to. One might assume that they're comparing it to other brand, but in fact, it could just be compared to that screen that came before it.

    Now here's the catch, does brightview mean twice as bright, or one quarter as bright? For all we know it could be just a smidge brighter. Now are you beginning to see where the marketing come in? Clever isn't it?
