MBP Glossy Screen = Shorter Battery Life When Used In Glary/Reflective Situations!!! Hi all I have just returned my 2011 15" Glossy 2.2 MacBook Pro and have placed an order for the HR Antiglare version. I sold my 17" i7 Antiglare 1 hour b4 the official announcement of the 2011 MacBook Pros last week..Phew! I thought I'd try the 15" as I found the 17" model to be a bit huge to lug about, I also thought I'd give this glossy screen a try.. BIG MISTAKE. With my 17" AG MB I could work outside or facing a bright window with the screen brightness set to 1 or 2 notches quite easily. This allowed me to get 7-8 hours of battery life without a problem. On the 15" Glossy though... working in the same situations I had to keep the brightness set almost at full or at full to try and block out all the reflections and glare. My battery life was easily halved doing this....What is the point of having a mobile portable computer that has to be used in optimum conditions or its screen effectively becomes a mirror? Please tell me.... I think visually the machines look better with glass glossy screen, but why choose form over function? Apple is a company that is a little too obsessed with aesthetics, I love their products overall but come on.... I choose 7-8 hours battery life and the ability to work in most bright places without issue, as opposed to 3-4 hours [if ur lucky] battery life and a pretty computer with a mirror for a screen..... I think its quite disgusting that we as customers should even have to pay extra to get a choice of glossy or matte......When Apple introduced glossy they let you have matte as an option at no extra cost, not anymore.....Oh how the worm has turned.
