    Matte. If it was glossy the reflection would be clear and sharp, not diffuse.

    It's matte. No doubt about it. Maybe a really dirty glossy?:p

    I also say it is the 17". Just look at the speaker/power button. On the 15" the power button is more or less centered in the speaker grill while on the 17" is is 'closer' to the keyboard like shown in the picture.

    Do some quick measurements.

    15-inch MacBook Pro (first picture)
    Screen Resolution: 1440 by 900 (native)
    Height: 1.0 inch
    Width: 14.1 inches
    Depth: 9.6 inches
    Weight: 5.4 pounds

    17-inch MacBook Pro (second picture)
    Standard Screen Resolution: 1680 by 1050 (native)
    Hi-Res Screen Resolution: 1920 by 1200 (native)
    Height: 1.0 inch
    Width: 15.4 inches
    Depth: 10.4 inches
    Weight: 6.8 pounds

    Thanks for the brilliant observation. I guess I might have bought a 17inch one if it's according to the picture but a 15inch one according to the specs on the website.

    The truth shall be revealed soon...

    If you didn't pay too much, and you didn't need the smaller size, congratulations.

    On the other hand, I'm sorry if you really wanted the 15" instead. :rolleyes:

    Just use System Profiler to find the Model Name (1st line) and then select Graphics/Displays to figure out what screen you have (obviously).

    How's that test of any thing. I like the standard res. It's easier on my eyes (Bad vision).

    As with the OP, it would be evident he has the standard res, because it's a similar price point as the highend 15.
