Using onshape in bright sunlight

Has anyone got a device on which they can use Onshape in bright sunlight if so what is it?

    I don't have a specific device in mind, but I imagine any laptop or chromebook with a matte screen (vs reflective) would be preferred. I don't think any device with a touch screen would be matte.

    I know you can get matte screen protectors for devices with touchscreens, which may help a little bit. 

    Depending on your needs, you might try looking at iPads. I don't have any of the recent models, but I've read that they generally good and bright screens that may help in sunlight. However, you'd need to check that you can do everything you need in the iOS app, though.
