Has anyone used/seen both of these screens on the new 15 inch mac book pros? I've used a glossy screen for a year on the 2011 model, but it's going in for replacement so I'm thinking about getting an anti glare screen as I use my mac for programming.

Any thoughts?

Antiglare is definitely a good choice. There aren't any cons to it compared to a glossy display, unless you like glare.

I personally love my Anti Glare. I'm using it outside as I type right now (I'm outside in a coffee shop on my campus) and I couldn't be happier with a computer. Well maybe if I upgrade to an SSD and 16gb of ram..... but for now I'm very content with this computer.

Last semester, I would use my friends 15inch High Res Glossy MBP and it was just too hard using it whenever we were behind sunlight. While the glossy screen is pretty, the AG screen is just as pretty and convenient.
