    I don't know why people still refer to the unibody MacBook/MacBook Pro screens as glossy. The screen is glass, and glass is reflective, so of course there will be some reflections. There is no gloss added to the screen. The previous gens had glossy screens, the new ones are just glass. That is all.

    Okay if it's glossy, then what do you call it? Reflective? Mirror-like? :rolleyes:

    From Apple:
    So, the people you mention is Apple themselves. The screen is glossy with a glass overlay. It is not glass itself like you state.

    So I'd say that glossy is the correct term ... if you trust the people who actually make it.

    You never stop learning.

    Will the 17" matte made using ground glass? Then we can use glossy glass and ground glass without anyone complaining...
