i just got a mbp with the R2D2 problem and i've returned it after 3 replacements so now i'm considering the 24" imac but i'm concerned about getting eye strain from the glossy screen. i've searched through so many threads about glossy vs. matte but they all appear to be talking about color and such for video/photo editing. i'm a student and i sit there reading text for hours each and every day. that's all i do, no games or photos or movies. do you guys have problems with reflections or eye strain? i've noticed i get eye strain from my iphone. not sure whether it's from the glossiness or brightness though as it was a bit better after i turned the brightness down.
