    I think the Retina although the Retina display construction has less glare than the regular glossy screen and more pixels than the anti-glare and glossy
    I wish they made the classic MBP with retina display, that would have been perfect for me at least..

    RE: glare...


    anti-glare MBP < rMBP << glossy MBP

    But the nature if the glare is different between these displays. In particular, the anti-glare display has a more diffuse reflection that lowers the overall contrast of the display while the retina display has a specular reflection that is much less intense than the specular reflection of the glossy display. The retina display thus still maintains a high contrast while decreasing its "glare" considerably below that of the glossy display. The "glare" from the anti-glare display (diffuse) and retina display (specular) are really different in nature, and thus it depends upon your intended use as to which type of "glare" is best for you.
