    So, Some macbook Pro's Have a bezel and others do not. This is just a personal preference poll. Which do you prefer the look of more? Bezel or without a bezel?
    Ok I mean the edge to edge glass(no bezel) or the MBP with the aluminum bezel

    what kind of question is that?

    the only macbook pros that have "bezels" are the 15 and 17inch models that have the optional anti glare screen one which has the silver bezel in place of the glass panel.

    All MBP's have bezels, whether they are silver or black.

    Myself, I prefer the black bezel because it doesn't distract from the screen like silver does.

    It seems like only those who spend most of their time admiring & staring at the style of their computer actually care. Those who use their computers care more about what it can do for them, than how good it looks sitting there.

    Mines the tool I earn my living with. I've never entered it in a beauty contest.

    I would like all screen for multi-display desktops.

    Alas that is not an option and i have to deal with 2-3 inches of space between two monitors at all times.

    My 55" Samsung has a "clear" bezel, and it's like a display floating in the middle of my bedroom, which is freaking awesome. I want all my displays to not have a bezel. Then again, I want Tony Stark's interface from Iron Man 2, but we're a few years off from that too.

    His point was that you're wrong. It has edge-to-edge glass, but the actual display only comes within about 3/4 of an inch of the edge of the casing. Perhaps you're not familiar with the concept of a bezel, but you're absolutely wrong if you claim there is not a bezel around the monitor on the MBP simply because it's not raised.

    Yelling louder doesn't make you any more correct. The glass may be edge to edge but there's still a bezel. You apparently don't know what bezel means.

    But it's not usable display space and why I say the glossy black edge is a bezel.

    You're both wrong and rude. Frankly, I'd hope you simply quit now and never return to the forums here again.

    A bezel would be the black bar surrounding the display of most MacBook Pros (silver on antiglare and pre-unibody ones). All MacBook Pros have a bezel. For all glossy display MacBook Pros, the display and bezel are located under the glass.
    Now if you said whether or not if I like edge-to-edge glass versus glass surrounded by bezel, then I'd vote for edge-to-edge.
