    My dog broke my screen on my MBP that I bought in march of 2008. The model on the bottom is a1260. It was originally a glossy screen. I regretted purchasing the glossy soon after and I would like to replace it with a matte screen. I ordered a screen from through some advice from a friend at work that "knew for sure" it was the right one. Needless to say it was not so I had to return that screen to them. Now I am looking to do an exchange with them for the correct screen. Which screen is the correct one for my laptop?

    When I search the model of my actual LCD panel in the laptop it comes with this

    But when I search my model # of my computer I get this

    It has three screens listed, only one is LED backlit and its a glossy display.

    Again I have the A1260, apparently LED backlit, 15.4" 1440x900 wxga+ display. I want to go with a matte screen this time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    From what I understand the screen on the unibody macbook pro is very difficult to work on/repair and they typically replace the entire topcase if any thing happens to the screen.

    My laptop however is NOT the unibody it was I believe the last revision of the MBP before the unibodies came out.
