    Is the bezel seamless with the screen? Meaning can dirt and junk get stuck in between the bezel and lcd? The laptop I have now is like that, and if it is on the MacBook I'll go with the seamless glossy screen instead of anti glare. Thanks in advance!

    I guess that dirt could get in there.
    Is your profile pic of you?

    I highly doubt apple would allow s design flaw like that.

    I do notice s lot of dust on my glossy though including specks of dust that get stuck but come out with a good rub.

    I'd say that it would be relatively okay. Just don't go for a few weeks without cleaning.

    I'll prolly go with glossy even though it's so hard to see in sunlight, I just want a seemless display I can wipe down.

    When I clean a screen, I first use a soft bristle brush along the bezel/screen border to move dust away from the bezel. Then, when I wipe the screen, I stay away from the edges. When dust gets wedged between the bezel and screen, it can be a pain to remove completely.

    i have a anti-glare screen with the grey bezel. i think the black boarder looks better and the glass provides extra protection for the screen. some of my previous powerbooks screen did not look the best after being closed all the time.

    It's pretty much the same as every other non-glass screen. There's a small black rubbery band around the bezel, which is a nice touch. But the bezel itself is nothing more than a thin piece of aluminum and stuff does get stuck under/in it.

    Guess it's just part of the screen construction and something they can stick the bezel to. It looks kinda nice, but after using an AG for a couple of days I do feel like it's an afterthought and could've been solved better. I'm sure it does its job, but sometimes it just looks kinda flimsy, and it can't beat the solid glass construction. But you know.. reflections.. meh :)

    Hold on, can't I just put a anti glare screen protector on the glossy screen? problem solved, it's a win win situation, correct?

    too bad it cant be silver. its not apple like. apple pays attention to the smallest details even placement of screws.

    I think the black line is intentional, to complement the black lever and black keys.

    The anti-glare screen is gorgeous. Couldn't be happier with it. :)

    I had a 1995 Powerbook, a 2005 iBook and now I have a 2007 MBP, all with a non-flush bezel and I've never had a problem with dirt between bezel and screen, just as I've never had a problem with cleaning the (unprotected) screen itself. These days I'm going to buy a MBP 15" with matte screen... it's not as if there's a giant gap.

    I can see how dirt underneath the bezel could possibly become a problem but a sensible amount of care should help to avoid that. It's also a question of the environment you use the laptop in. I've used mine on and off music and theater stages, in rehearsal rooms, hotels, offices, cars etc. and at home - all in all indoors mostly, not necessarily controlled spaces but indoors. Would I use the computer mainly outdoors, I'd probaby appreciate a flush glass front. With matte film, that is. ;)

    troop231, do you have a dirt-bezel-screen-problem with your current laptop?

    Probably better not using a screen protector as there are many posts on this forum who advise against it for various reasons.

    My review

    Got the Moshi screen. Wish I had the forethought to get the AG. My next one will definitely be AG. This certainly helps, and I can definitely vouch for the extra fuzziness, though you get used to it right quick.

    Installed in a sec, no air bubbles. It's great if you need it, and I found myself getting headaches and focusing on reflections.
