Help out a Apple fan here. Having spent 2k I want my MBP to serve me for the long-term and not cause eye strain, as most glossy displays do. I love Matte. It suits the "Pro" line of the MBP and I am not sure why Apple is only offering it on the MBP 17" line. I cannot afford the 17" MBP's anti-glare option ($1000 more!) and nor do I need such a huge laptop. Considering spending less to get a MacBook Pro 2.4GHz of last generation to hold me over till Apple actually offers an anti-glare to the 15". are you listening Apple? Apple, please stop being greedy to us loyal fans and listen to what we want. I am not agreeing to your policies as of lately, thnks.
