I have had it with the flickering on my 15" glossy MBP. Who knows if it is the LED backlighting, the gpu, the display. Seems people have had all manner of stuff replaced with no effect often. Using the tests on this site using full native resolution I have obvious flickering on 2b,4a and 4b...supposedly this indicates some voltage issue. http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/inversion.php Clearly if it's the backlighting or anything but the display it self changing to matte won't matter but before I consider the bother I was wondering if anyone with the matte screen had seen or heard of this flicker issue. This is not the blacking out thing but rather a subtle irregular pulsating most noticeable on white backgrounds for example. Due to my location taking it in for service is not an option (which would likely enter the endless loop of it never being fixed since they don't know why it happens) Before I sell it and take a loss I wanted to do due diligence and don't see anything about the matte screens and this problem using searches. Believe me I would love to keep this laptop as I love everything about it but this but it is becoming unbearable and I don't know if it is just "how they are" or if a matte screen or change of some sort would fix things. I know some people think this is a non existent issue but it is real and irritating. If not for this I really would have no true complaints about this laptop.
