Yes the screen is very nice and I can deal with the glare compared with my 17" MBP. However you could not beat the screen size and the ability to have a number of windows and programs running and easily clicking to them. So I will miss that, but the 15" is more portable for sure. I do like the extra memory and speed over the 17". I have not yet really run it through its paces like processing raw files and editing a number of pictures opened in PS and the speed in which the files are processed. In fact I am going to give that a try after I post this. I hoping that some of the actions I use will run much faster.. I just tried a couple of things and its a little faster than my 17".. It had a 512 gig SSD too. So far I like it, but I am not overwhelmed like I thought I would be.
