I used to be one of the biggest enemies of glossy screens, i even submitted a post supporting how important is the lack of existance of the mate screen for the new imac http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=338485 Yesterday i was out looking for a glossy laptop for my cousin. I must say that i was overwhelmed by the brightness and colors, everything was so vivid! The worst thing was that there was a pc laptop (with glossy screen) next to the macbookpro (led/mate screen). Thats the point where i was shocked! Not olny was the pc laptop clearer and more "alive" but the macbookpro next to it seemed... dead! So i stood there watching while bad thoughts came into my mind! The difference on the screen were obvious, and they were in favor to the pc glossy screen. The macbook pro seemed so dull and dead with the mate screen! Its funny cause despite glossy displays have great disadvantages -i think more than the mate- people still buy them and as if that wasnt enough now Apple has implemented them too! So now im puzzled need some views on the glossy/mate MBPro subject! What do u say guys and why? Mate or glosssy?
