    So I might be ordering a ZBS360G5 soon, but I'm having some difficulty answering some questions.

    First up… What's a reliable way of getting spec sheets for models out of HP? Partsurfer doesn't have all the models and it's often not completely correct it seems.

    Has anyone used the Sure View display? I can't find much about it, and for some reason, HP decided to cripple the specs in the Quick Specs about the SV panel details. I'm kind of torn over the battery life of the FHD SV display and the very pretty but battery hungry AG Dreamcolor.

    Pulled from the ZB 15 G5 Spec sheet:
    Average Operating Power:

    DreamColor 25W (Windows® 10 64-bit)
    Without DreamColor 16.8 W (Windows® 10 64-bit)

    It also has the really sparcely detailed spec sheet on the Sure View display. I was going to use it as the example panel, but it's Anti-Glare, you know like the x360 should be.

    The 15 G5(AG), Studio G5(AG), and the x360(Doesn't say BV or not and no active area measure), all have the same lame spec sheet on the Sure View option. It's so weird that only the 15u G5 has the decent spec layout, but it's active area is a tiny bit different so I'm not sure if I can use those specs.

    I have a X360 G5 with the 4K dreamcolor display. It's easily the best display I've ever had in a laptop. On the other hand, I've heard nothing but bad things about the sure view option.

    Pretty sure it's the glossy screen. However, it's not extremely glossy and the screen is so bright that it doesn't even matter. Only screen I can honestly dial down the brightness on, during the day in my office.

    I've spent several months with both the DreamColor glossy and anti-glare screens of the ZBS360g5. I'm biased because I don't like glossy screens as they get in the way of my design work. However I would recommend the a anti-glare here as it's actually rated at 600nits whereas the glossy is only rated to 400, so it's brighter! The anti-glare version is also ~.5lbs lighter because they put a glass pane in front of the screen to achieve the gloss. As a bonus they also texture the surface of the anti-glare screen so it has a nicer feel with the stylus.

    When customizing the configuration you must first select the Integrated HD 720p Infrared (IR) DualAryMic Webcam so that the anti-glare DreamColor will appear as an option.

    If your goal is eye candy get the glossy, it's beautiful. But if you want to work on your laptop without lighting restrictions go anti-glare.
