As a full-time professional photographer producing high-end, high-quality work, I use 20" iMac Intel 2GHz Core Duo machines (the original Intel iMacs), with the matte screens and maxed out with 2 gb of ram for Photoshop editing daily (CS3). I have found that the matte screens are awesome for imaging work... very accurate colors, no perceptible undesireable variation in color or brightness at different viewing angles. I've been verrry happy with these iMacs for production in my portrait photography studio. Now... recently I've considered upgrading one of my original 20" Intel iMacs to a current production 24" iMac for the larger screen area, 4 GB ram capability, and faster processor (filter processing!!!), but have been hesitant because of all the bad press I've read about using the glossy screens for professional color work. Complaints I've seen refer to distracting reflections of room/ambient lighting, a false oversaturated presentation, un-even color/brightness across the full area of the display, and dead pixels. WTF??? If these criticisms are valid, I think Apple made a big mistake going from matte to glossy screens with the iMacs, even if their justification was that iMacs are just consumer machines... a LOT of professional imaging people have used matte screen iMacs for professional work and the older matte screens were perfect for that... BUT, what about using a new 24" iMac with a glossy screen for professional image editing??? Is the 24" glossy screen iMac truly up to the job of displaying color images evenly, consistently, and accurately... as the older matte screens were?
