    There hasn't been a matte iMac since September 2007.

    that comparison doesnt seem fair, because those classic pros dont have a big viewing angle range and the picture is not up front.

    True, but when I compare a glossy cMBP and a matte cMBP side by side, at an awkward angle, the former has to deal with glare while the other looks washed out.

    OP: iMacs don't have - or need - matte at all because they are designed to be used indoors.

    For professionals who spend a lot of hours in front of the screen, matte is the best for your eyes.

    Umm, matte isn't better than glossy indoors, especially since you have some degree of control over lighting. Sun rises? Lower the window blinds. Harsh light glare from above? Adjust the iMac.

    It is when you are outside where matte works better than glossy, but how often do you use iMacs outdoors?
