    anyone know if the retail stores have 15" MBPs on display that have the high-res screens?

    i'm looking to replace my 2007 15" MBP with a new one and tempted by the high-res screen, but would like to have a look at one before deciding either way.

    that's strange, seeing as the glossy is the standard version.

    maybe so, but it's specifically the high-res screen i want to see.
    just thought as the glossy is the standard, they would have a glossy high-res on display.

    like the previous poster said, they have base models and a souped up version, which means anti glare and highest specs.

    just go and see if you like the anti glare. its not the matte option u should be concerned about, but the resolution which u can see on it

    had a look in store today and it looks pretty good.
    might take a little adjusting compared to the standard res 15" I have just now, but the extra screen real estate will come in handy.
