Yes this is another matte screen thread, if you don't like it get out now, it won't be acceptable if you stay and whine about others whinnying about matte screens. Grow up if you are an adult and learn to be tolerable to people's opinions when they want more choice, if you are not adult, well...wait. Yes we like our screens matte, no we are not getting them, yes we ask for merely an option for them. I d like to quote engadget here with a very funny line: Interestingly a poll here http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=673978 has matte being 3 times more popular than glossy and more than half more popular than glassy. Yet apple is nowhere to be found in matte screens for 13 and 15 inch machines and is forcing users to buy a 17" beast to get their choice. This to me is unacceptable. Actually it's not just unacceptable it's by far the worst insensitivity and forcing ones will on public opinion we've seen from apple. And it's not just that they are forcing their opinion it's that the product they are offering has indeed lot of glare by most if not all accounts. How can they justify this to people with eye sight issues? To elders? To professionals who choose matte? To people who just don't like the glossy option? And we are really not asking for much here, are we? We are not telling them get the imac matte, or the macbook matte, people are (to start with ) at least asking for the mbp 15" to go matte, instead of having just a single niche product matte for no other reason than forcing people to buy it. Apple is a company, but it's also a huge community of people who most offer than not do think different. It's really sad that the company is turning an blind eye to us. They can do their strategies their way, they can displease a lot of people, but when it comes to matters as crucial as sight and visibility they can't just obliterate a product that THE MAJORITY want across the board of their offerings. As long as apple keep ignoring the community they gonna get the heat from us until they concede and give us what we rightly want in at least some minimal part of their line up. Everyone take a few moments to voice your opinions there http://www.apple.com/feedback . They will listen.
