    I really want get one of the new MacBook Pros but I noticed that they don't list antireflective coating in the tech specs. Does anyone know anything about this?

    Please explain why that's a good thing. Even the iPad mini has antireflective coating

    Yes, it does. Every glass Mac screen has since the original Retina models.

    They don't bother to list it anymore on the iMac or MBP because there's no glass-screen Mac model that doesn't. They bother listing it on, say, the iPad, because it marks a distinction between the Pro models and the $329 9.7". In the same vein, they also don't bother to note that the MBP screen is laminated even though it is.

    They have it, but it’s not a matte screen. The MBP has rather good anti reflective properties because of the coating but moreso because of its construction.
