Do you think Apple will make the shiny screen optional on the macbook?

    Wax on or wax off. How many people here think Apple will make the glossy screen of the Macbook an option in the second revsion? How many people have avoided buying a macbook because of the glossy screen?

    I hope so. I wouldn't have minded getting one if it wasn't for the glossy screen!

    I think the macbook will always have a screen...

    I doubt it. The PC market really dictated this one for Apple. I think because the glossy screen is an attraction for most consumer laptops, Apple will keep theirs this way, as well. Plus, for the professional users out there, it's one more reason to opt for the more expensive model instead.

    I, however, think the glossy is great. Most of the time I can't even tell it's a glossy - it's much different than the PC laptops you see. When color matters and when I'm at home, I'm on an external monitor anyways.

    no, but they should, the most they'd do is make it optional on the black model.

    I prefer matt. Less eyestrain for extended hours.

    I thought this was a thread about the nice shine that the Macbook accumulates from skin oils...

    (and yes, I clean it very frequently!):confused:

    To the poll, I don't see them offering the choice on the Macbook as it's just another way to differentiate their professional and consumer models.

    I doubt that they will. I think that the Pro will also loose that option as Apple decide to go entirely for glossy screens over matte screens.

    The only true freedom is freedom from choice.
