    i em just now watchn coop on revision three and one of they guys has a new macbook but i see that he doesnt have the black boarder around it like the next guy hes sitn next to. you can see that the glossy bit would just fit in and now his screen is a matte finish.

    so can you take this bit off and isnt that cheap of apple just to have like a glossy spec thing to make ur screen look glossy when its matte underneath?

    I would imagine that its not just a removal of the 'glossy bit'. TechRestore offers this sort of surgery for Macbooks: http://www.techrestore.com/xcart/product.php?productid=18498&cat=390&page=1

    They remove the glass and the LCD screen, replace the screen with an equivalent matte screen, and fit a custom made bezel replacement.

    Just removing the glass doesn't give you that result.

    There's a thread around here somewhere about a guy replacing his black bezel with a custom made silver one.
    I think he might have even replaced the screen to. I dont really remember.

    That looks to be the 17" MBP. They offer a matte option which replaces the black bezel with a silver one.

    I was just gonna say thats a Pro!
    The screen is for sure bigger than the MacBook to the left.

    I think that the one on the left is a 15" Pro and the one on the right is a 17" Pro with the matte-screen option only available on the 17".

    That's what I'm seeing as well. You can see the speaker grille on the left one, and the right one has a bigger screen so it must be the 17" matte.
