After using a glossy 15" uMBP (2.4Ghz, 2GB, 250GB, 256VRAM) for 7 months, I'm happy to finally get a top of the line 15" antiglare (2.8Ghz, 4GB, 500GB, 512VRAM). I wanted to share my impressions thus far. At first I wasn't sure that would prefer the silver bezel around the screen, but I have to say that I now prefer it. It looks really sharp, and I actually like the black rubber ring that goes around it as well as it compliments the black keyboard. It looks like a Macbook should. I can't begin to express my delight with the antiglare screen. The colours are so vivid and sharp as they're not being washed out by the reflections. I find myself being able to use the laptop for much longer durations as my eyes are not straining nearly as much. It is truly a relief to use, and I can see myself much more productive with it. The hardware increase has made a huge difference. With double the RAM, Snow Leopard, and the faster processor, navigating through applications seems so smooth and responsive. It is very enjoyable to use and would recommend to anyone to spend the extra money to upgrade. So far, I have not seen any screen flickering of my screen which is wonderful. Overall I would strongly recommend anyone to get the antiglare screen. Some say that the glossy screen looks more vivid, but I strongly think the antiglare screen looks much better. When people see it, they are usually quite impressed. It is truly a pleasure to use, and I haven't been this happy with a Mac laptop in a long time.
