Just got my new alu macbook this weekend and the glossy screen is driving me nuts. While the colors are amazing I basically have to sit in a half dark room with no bright area behind me if I do not want to see reflections of myself of other things on the screen. In a normal room at daylight there are loads of reflections on the screen. I have a couple of years old Macbook Pro with a matte screen and this one I have no such problems. Very annoying since I intend to use the macbook for travelling and in coffee shops, airports etc. where there usually are lights everywhere. Aside from being very annoying and disctracting, I also feel my eyes get more tired after a few hours reading on the web on the glossy screen with all the reflections. Some guys seem to like their glossy screens though. Will I get used to the glossy screen???? Seems ridiculous to have a screen which shows things you do not want. Except for the screen the machine rocks. It is very quick and the new gestures on the mousepad is very useful.
