I feel really dumb even writing this....BUT: last weekend I purchased a 15" base model MBP from my local Apple Retail Store. I asked the clerk for a glossy screen model. He brought out a box that did not indicate what sort of screen it had, so he went into the back to check with someone who allegedly advised him that the default screen is glossy, therefore if the box does not specify matte screen there is a glossy screened machine enclosed. I am genuinely wondering now if I got a matte screened machine instead. The two reasons I think this are the screen is in no way as reflective of light as my iMac and the colors are not nearly as vibrant as they are on my iMac, which has a glossy screen. Short of taking my laptop into a retail store and placing it next to the displayed MBPs to compare/contrast, is there any way to tell? Can anyone confirm the whole box-listing story the clerk gave me? Thanks.
