    For those who miss the anti glare coating on the old MBP...

    Unfortunately, it'll ruin the color gamut.

    The antiglare BTO option from Apple on the cMBPs were all right (in fact color reproduction is even more accurate than retina - AnandTech has results regarding this), because these displays were calibrated directly from Apple.

    Sure, you could calibrate a retina with a matte layer on it, but in the end, it's still not the same as the Apple antiglare display.

    Haha I'm sorry about that. I just got a matte screen protector on eBay, because most people are here are in the US, I suggest you look at your own country to see what's available.

    I don't think it will ruin the colour gamut, sure putting a non 100% transparent layer will change many variables, but unless you are a critical designer, it won't matter to most people.

    I got it to keep the screen clean. I have a keyboard cover that collects all the oils from my fingers and it always gets on the screen so this is a good alternative to cleaning the screen all the time, especially with reports that the coating on the display could come off.

    Awesome! I just installed mine a few days ago!

    The glossy screen is unusable for me because of the reflection.

    Here the one I'm using...

    It doesn't ruin the color or make the screen dimmer.

    That's cool. I find that it doesn't affect the screen much too. It was a pain to put it on though.

    Yeah, it was a total pain to apply. It took me about an hour to align it and remove the air bubbles and trapped dust. The film was so tight fitting that it's almost an exact fit to the edge of the rubber frame.

    Looks great though!
