Hi, I've read quite a lot about the glossy screens on iMacs and advice offered has been to use a 3m matt film product or remove the glass from the front.

Is anyone actually using either of those 2 methods successfully with their iMac?

The 3m matt film sounds like it might be awkward to fit without airbubbles etc and might affect sharpness/colour etc

Removing the glass from the front could make the screen vulnerable when using things like calibrator devices that need to sit on the screen to work, I don't care what it looks like BTW

Power and features wise the i7 iMac is all the computer I need but need a matt screen is no good for me. I will splurge on a macpro and monitor but its just more than I need and so would prefer the saving

Personally, I wouldn't even consider removing the glass. If you were to damage the display you would be looking at a rather expensive replacement (not covered under warranty).:(
