    I don't want to put a matte film on my iMac, but I hate the glossy screen. Is it possible to replace the glass panel with a whole new aftermarket matte panel? Thanks!

    Not that I know of, but I just got a business idea...

    Not Exactly But....

    You could try:

    It's a fudge, and I like the glossy screen. But apart from replacement I can't think of another way.

    A client I work with as a consultant basically decided she hated the reflectiveness enough to just ask me to take the glass off.
    Yeah, it's a little uglier, since that removes the black bezel. It also catches dust like woah, but it does work-- and it's free. (well, you need two suction cups).
