    I wont tell the long story but basically I've got a MBP still sealed in it's box to put on ebay. I was wandering if anyone knows how to identify wether the screen is glossy or "anti-glare" without opening the box. The guys in the apple store seem to know how to do it but I'm clueless.

    I'm prepared to be humiliated if there's a simple answer to this!

    Thanks

    I believe it's listed with the system specs on the top of the box.

    I think MBPs are matte unless otherwise noted on the box.

    Well if you have the invoice you can check it there. On mine it says glossy, so I assume it wont say anything if it's the matte screen.

    As others have said, if it says Glossy it is Glossy, if it says nothing, it is Matte.
