    I overheard that apple either already got rid of the matte finish and is only selling glossy... or they are going to start doign that.


    I love using computers in bright rooms and hate glossy finishes.

    Anyone give me more insight to this?

    Matte (i.e. Antiglare) is still an option on 15" and 17" MacBook Pros. :)

    They got rid of it on the notebooks then people complained and they brought it back for $50 fee.

    Anti-glare used to be available on iMacs. No more.

    Of course you can, even from the Apple Store directly. just an extra 49$ and you're good to go. Only on the high end 15" and the 17" though.

    You can get it on the low end 15" as well.

    Yes, you can, I was speaking from the Apple Store's perspective. Not online, in store. But, then again, it may be different from store to store. Mine only had the high end matte/glossy.
