Does anyone have a picture of the MBP with a glossy screen? I can't decide if I should get glossy or matte and I dont think they have any glossy screened MBPs at my Apple Store.

Thanks.

Most likely you're going to have to go to the Apple Store and check one out. You really can't tell by pictures, you have to see it in person. It all depends on the lighting.

Having seen the new MacBooks at the Apple Store this weekend, I must say I prefer the matte screen... the glossy screen REALLY reflects light, it REALLY shows fingerprints and such, and it seems like the gloss effect will get worn off over time.

I'm going with the matte screen on my MBP when I order it.

Although it's an option now on the MBP my local Apple store didn't have one on display yet. Personally, I prefer the matte screen and looking at the new MacBooks with the high-gloss screen didn't change my mind, so I went with the matte screen on my new MBP.

A friend of mine has had a Sony laptop with a glossy screen for 3 years and it hasn't worn off at all. I'm still not a huge fan of it, but they seem sturdy enough.
