    Apple is still using glossy screen on MacBook? Apple is also using glossy screen on MacBook Pro and MacBook Air? Does all the windows laptop have glossy screen?

    No, PCs don't. There's no real way around this unless you buy a 17" MacBook Pro.

    Everything is glossy now. Most major PC laptops are glossy screens.

    Apple has glass over the glossy screen which can amplify reflections even more though (on new Unibody MacBook's).

    I think apple are quickly learning this though, and that is why the matte screen was included on the 17". My guess is that they will have the option for the 15" macbook pros soon as well, or at least on the next update

    The matte screen was included on the 17" as an option for the "highest-end" users.

    Apple isn't going to put one on the 15".

    I see where you're coming from, but not all 'highest end' users want a 17" screen to lug about. At the end of the day, they have been labelled as 'pro' machines, and so thy shud all have the 'pro' option of a matte screen at BTO
