Did the mid 2012 non-retina MBP 15 have a glassy hi-res screen option?

    I see it listed every once in a while but I've never seen one in the flesh. Is it real or are people just bad at listing their wares?

    This is for the non-retina MBP 15". 1680x1050 glossy. Was it a real BTO option?

    Also, did the standard 1440x900 come in an AG/matte option? Basically, if I see a 2012 MBP 15 with the 'white' aluminum bezel, does that without a doubt mean it's high res?

    - No to the first, yes to the second.
    The AG options were only offered in high-res.

    Great, thanks!

    ----------

    So basically the non-retina 2012 models came 3 ways:

    standard glossy 1440x900
    Anti-glare hi-res 1680x1050
    hi-res glossy 1680x1050 (this one I guess is really hard to tell from just photos, impossible if the display is off.)

    - I'm still enjoying my 2011 AG. :)

    - Yes. Same thing for the 2011 and 2010 models.

    Yeah I upgraded to the 2012 model for that very reason. Still a fast machine. I also like having a second HD inside the machine. I kinda hate thunderbolt, it messed everything up and forced a move to EVERYTHING EXTERNAL!!!
