The regular for me. I hate the reflection the glossy can sometimes pick up from the lights around you. Where I live, it's not that easy for me to adjust where I use my MB Pro or the lights in the room.
Four pages of discussion on this here in a poll.
Matte screen all the way.
The real answer is not to ask the question.
Your best bet is to find two people with notebooks, one matte one glossy.
Get them to let you try them in various situations and judge for yourself.
Each of the options have an advantage over the other. Both have a disadvantage too.
Taken from Monitors Blog:
I believe a lot of that has been debated. It's not *fact* just because you found it on some blog. If it were such a clear-cut decision as that explanation makes it sound, there wouldn't be such a huge discussion about this always.
Here, the information was pulled from an LCD manufacture.
I recently bought a 17" C2D MBP - glossy. I had wondered, while I was waiting for my new purchase to arrive, if I had made the right decision. I've been in front of matte LCDs for 4 years now. Well, I don't get what all the fuss is about. I don't notice reflections when the screen is on. Otherwise, it's a bit sharper and brighter. I like it, but I don't think it's an overwhelming improvement over a matte screen. If I was making the choice again, I'd stick with the glossy screen.
Got a Black Macbook (C2D) last night, with of course, the glossy screen. My room is arranged in a way that puts a window directly behind me, a light directly above me, and another light facing me. While doing this, I've had to adjust the screen ONCE to suit the glare, and that was because I was lying to the point where I was looking up at the screen.
Surprise, a glossy LCD manufacturer says glossy LCDs are better.
I prefer glossy screen. When I'm out and about the screen is much clearer to see. When I'm working in my office I use an external monitor.
