I won't lie. I had this happen to me once as a customer with a new laptop. It was about four months later when I realized that there was a protective film over the screen.

It didn't impede my ability to use the laptop. It was more of just a 'huh' moment.


I bought a Kobo H2O (it's great to be able read books in the bath again!) and left the film on it because I kind of like it. Weird for a tech but true - I also left the film on my Nokia until it started to unstick itself and annoy me.

Funnily enough the Kobo is FAR more responsive with the film off. I am fail.
