I am looking to replace my iBook G4 soon with a new MacBook. The only issue of concern is the strong opinions I have heard against the glossy screen. Is the glossy screen really so much more difficult to see? I read one person stating it was akin to a CRT monitor--blech! I have to wear glasses when using the computer, so anything less strainful on the eyes is nice. I will add that at desk at home I use an external monitor and during class lectures, the lights are oftened dimmed (especially the ones in the front where I am sitting to promote visualization of the classroom projector). Even though I would be using the computer in situations where either screen would work, I want to prevent serious problems in all the situations that I do not expect--as that is the point of having a laptop (being able to take it anywhere). After maxing the RAM out on the black MacBook, I noticed the price difference was ~100 between it and the cheapest MacBook Pro. I am more of an iBook/MacBook fan for the look, durability, and battery but if the screen is *that* bad, I could consider the MacBook Pro.
