Excessive use can lead to a laptop display being scratched. High-end touchscreen laptops these days often feature Corning’s Gorilla Glass, which gained popularity back in 2007 when it was specifically designed for the first iPhone. Gorilla Glass is tough and protects a smartphone or tablet’s display when it is dropped. If you drop a high-end laptop, chances are you might end up damaging much more than the display itself. So in that particular case, the focus is towards safeguarding the display against scratches, not potentially damaging falls. That is why Corning has created Gorilla Glass NBT, a new solution that protects touchscreen laptop displays against scratches.
Gorilla Glass NBT ensures that the display is able to withstand any weakness that may result from a scratch. Corning says that complaint rate for scratches on touchscreen laptops is higher than other devices, so there’s an obvious need for this product. This new solution is expensive, but Corning says that Gorilla Glass NBT provides 8 to 10 times more damage resistance for just 1 or 2 percent of the device’s retail price. Dell is one of the first vendors to integrate the new Gorilla Glass NBT solution in their upcoming touchscreen laptops due this fall.
