I know the subject has been beaten to death, but I just saw the MBP for the first time. It is just awful! What have they been thinking? The minimal angle of view change changes the colors completely and the contrast is way too high for any serious color judgement. MBP is the tool for every photographer and color artist right now, I was able to calibrate mine the way it is almost perfectly matching my "serious" Eizo monitor. It allows to work while on the field and often my first color correction done on my MBP doesn't require any adjustments. Now with the new one you can use as a mirror, but not for any serious work! I'm really disappointed, I already ordered the previous model as my backup, but I just hate if Apple is killing the matte display the way the are killing the firewire port - it will be just the end of the perfect tool. Why, tell me Steve, why???
