I know people have their own preferences on Matte or Glossy, thats fine. I have an iBook 900mhz and it is outdated, but still going strong. However it's time to upgrade. I don't know the technical details on the screens resolution etc.. but I do know that it is not glossy. I will be buying a MBP and my first choice was to stick with the anti-glare/matte as that's what im used to. With my iBook I know in some situations the screen on full brightness can seem somewhat dim, but im assuming the newer MBP's are brighter even with matte? I have used a Toshiba glossy laptop and was not a fan of the reflections, but can adjust im sure. Anybody go from a iBook display to a new MBP display, what was it like? With that said, is the glossy so terrible or will it be fine? I dont have an apple store near me to go check them out so I will order from online. In addition to the regular computer use of internet, email etc.. i will be editing videos and photos.
