    Ladies and Gentlemen,

    As many of You have understood from my previous poll on the Blu-Ray-on-Mac issues, my general position on the PC design is that each individual component of the system must be customizable (by the customers) as much as possible.

    In the following poll I would like to know the opinions of Mac users towards the switch of Apple to the glare displays on the 13" notebooks.

    Do you want to have an option to select between "glossy/matte /semi-glossy" screens on Mac Laptops during its order?

    My observation is that for the long and intensive office work, the antiglare/matter screens are more comfortable for eyes (although they may lose in contrast). In principle, an optimal solution would be to to use semi-glossy screens (with anti-reflex coating) similar to those produced by Sony. Anyways, "YES" to the choice is my choice.

    PS Since the formulation of this poll differs from the formalations of the previous ones:

    Poll: Glossy or Matte Screen?
    Poll: What type of screen do you prefer on the MacBook (Glossy or Matte)
    Poll: Do you prefer an antiglare or glossy screen?

    (again, making an emphasis on the choice during the order) I decided not to remove the present one (if the admins do not object).

    You know before posting such a question you should have a basic understanding of what apple sells. That is they do offer an option for anti-glare or glossy screens for the MBP line :rolleyes:

    Edit:
    There's no need to have your title in all caps either.

    I certainly think they should find a better solution for the matte displays.
    It looks weird atm.. like they didn't put much thought in the design of the matte screens.

    There is a reason why it's called anti GLARE.

    I have 2 MBPs, both of which are anti-glare. So yes, I would very much like the option of being able to select different levels of screen reflectivity.

    Apple should give options on everything to be Anti-Glare.

    I hate how Apple has sold-out and tried to attract the masses with this "Oh it's Shiny!!" mentallity with the iMacs/MacBook Pros. I tried editing a video on a Alu iMac and holy hell are reflections distracting. Also, reflections of lights block on-screen images.

    What happened to true Industrial design and pratical designs with beautiful asthetics?

    I have a 15" MacBook Pro with Anti-Glare now (mid-2009 model), and in the future I'd love to replace it with a 13" MacBook Pro also with Anti-Glare.

    I've been 9 months with a Glare MacBook Pro (late 2008) and I couldn't get used to it, at that time Apple didn't have Anti-Glare on those yet so I had no choice.

    My previous MacBook Pro's were also Anti-Glare (late 2006 model) and yes I really need Anti-Glare! :mad:

    Voted Yes!
