    Specifically looking at the 15" option here, but I was wondering if it was possible to order the Hi-Resolution Antiglare option that does not have the grey border around the screen? Just have it black like the normal glassy screen.

    Possible? or just a pip dream?

    The black on the gloss ones is part of the glass that makes them glossy...

    I HATED the silver border when I first saw it....now I don't even notice it, and when I see a glossy model, the black looks strange.:rolleyes:

    One option is a matte film for the glossy screen.

    Focus on the display itself and you won't notice the border. ;)

    OP. To answer your question. No.

    IMHO, the gray boarder compliments the matte screen.

    Anyhow, if you want the black boarder -- since it is part of the glossy display -- then you'll need to get the glossy screen and then add an anti-glossy/matte film screen cover.

    Bah! As long as you do the masking right, you'll be fine. So, just cover your screen in duct tape and you'll be golden.

    whoa whoa.. before anyone gets any ideas from this post. do NOT put duct tape on your screen... that tape is strong and will likely leave residue, or worse, ruin the screen.

    there's gotta be a way to take the bezel off so you can paint it properly.

    Painting your computer equates to the same level as painting your car yourself...might look good to you, but no one else. But then again, it's your computer...:rolleyes:
