When will they be available?
When they're released.
Fixed that for you.
*sigh* There was this rumour, but there seems to be no follow-up. Maybe October? Maybe never. Apple sux anyway ;-)
Yet another rumour.
I hope it happens but it's just speculation until we get an official announcement from Apple.
That's just one of numerous rumours through out the years.
I REPEAT, IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN.
The consensus is that apple will never again release the matte screen options. I will say that many of the same folks including yours truly said the same thing about FW and the MB and lo and behold apple added FW to the 13 rebranded MBP.
irregardless, I do thing the odds are not in your favor for seeing such a change in course with apple. The industry has for the most part moved to glossy. Apple's implementation of glossy is much better then their competitors. I was a big matte screen proponent, but after seeing the glossy screens on the MBP, I was won over. The reflections are not as bad as some folks make it out to be and you need to be smart in how you set up your office. Bright light from the rear will create more reflections so you adapt.
Well its nice to see does listen to its customers. Kudos Steve Jobs.
When can we expect the 13" matte to be released please?
Never. 13" isn't really a "pro" machine.
Why, b/c it doesn't have an ExpressCard slot or dual graphics or ?
Apple have sufficiently upgraded it from the MB to be a reasonably compelling Pro machine. With FW800 back, 8GB RAM, 6+ usable battery life, -- it ain't bad
I would buy a 13" matte pro in a heartbeat!
I'm working with a glossy 15" (purchased mid June) equipped with a Power Support Anti-Glare film (http://www.powersupportusa.com/product/list/mac-book).
It is a big step forward and after two days you do not recognize the grainy stuff anymore (just for running windows in the VMWare with it's clear cut fonts).
When the 15" matte version came out I was really pissed off and wanted to have the matte option. I checked with a colleague having the 17" matte uMBP and in outdoor conditions the PS film is much less reflective then the original matte option
So a 13" uMBP with the film is really fine to work with! :thumb:
13" antiglare mac?
Add me to the list. I have a mac mini, which drives two (24" + 17") displays just fine, and it presumably has same video hardware as the 13" mac. Add the (HD)SD slot and plenty fast enough processor -
it is pro enough. Make it matte (ok, "antiglare"), and I'll buy. When I need a big display, I'll just hook it up.
C'mon apple, we'll pay $50 for the choice...
Why do so many people believe that "pros" (whatever that means) want laptops that are clunkier and less portable?
Office??? I thought we were talking about laptops, you know, portable laptops. What you use when you are NOT in office.
When I am at a desk, I always connect my laptop to a large matte screen and run in clamshell mode. At a desk I want my closed laptop to have a small footprint and be out of the way, of course.
almost november and still no matte/AG MBP 13"
i'm bummed. c'mon can we have them before xmas. please?
Can't you just add a matt screen protector? It'll be much cheaper than the Apple option, and it protects your screen as well. Screen protectors are REALLY hard to apply on laptop screens though.
Tried that route and it sucked. Two different kinds.
I tried them both on my Air and they worked much better but didn't fit. My conclusion is it's the glass that makes them not as good an option as a matte display.
Apple will release a 13" version when everyone who's been holding out finally gives in and buys a glassy-gloss.
I know if a matte was introduced today, I'd be looking at offing my glassy for sure and buy one tomorrow. The glassy IMHO is the worst Apple blunder since the Mighty Mouse.
Oh you mean matt displays are inherently different? I always thought they were just the same as glossy, with an Apple applied matt layer.
Have I gone back in time? I just ordered a 15" mattbook the other week
