    I guess, it depends what you are doing.
    I prefer high resolution glossy.

    I'm a net nerd, not doing heavy photo/video editing, would like to play a few games on occasion like half life 2 or counter strike

    Here's the bottom line: Go to the store and see for yourself.


    It's like asking online which car you should get: only you know what you
    like



    And thats the way the cookie crumbles :D

    Agreed. Go to the store and decide for yourself. Don't let me preference cloud your judgement.

    Why are you making other people cloud your heart's content?
    Decide for yourself.

    glossy if you work in a dim environment, matte for everything else.

    I first got the high-res glossy and after a few months of using it and then having the chance to use a 15" high-res anti-glare. I converted over.
    It was so much more nicer for what I wanted to do; edit photos, movies and play games in whatever lighting environment im in.
    Its just as vivid and bright but more of a true color instead of a popped out bright picture.

    Neither are bad choices, but I think the Anti-glare non glass display is one of the best. IMPO

    It's an individual decision.

    Go to a store and compare.

    I like the matte

    but

    Too cheap

    So I got the glossy instead.


    If its real HD you will see it.


    Looking on my PB its still shines but my eyes have adjusted to the glossiness of the MBP. Although the glossy screens on high end iMac look sick. A lot better than the MBPs. imo

    Get the HD one if you use your MacBook Pro as your main computer. If you hook it up to a external display (like myself) you don't need the HD.
