    Wow, just wow. The screen of this thing is unbelievable! I'm so glad I went for the AG option!

    So far so good. Love the screen real estate. The only downside is that the keyboard, feels kinda loose compared to the MBA.

    The MBA looks tiny next to the 17".

    Off to set it up! :D

    Attached some photos (taken with the iPhone).

    ROCK'IN bud :cool::D That's what I'd get also, now its the only MBP with matte and the cool thin silver bezel. What speed processor and drive. did you get the SSD?

    PS: where's that numeric keypad Apple? Its just a sea of silver. there's space. Please put in a full KB next round

    Off-centre KB = no probs

    and why would the touchpad have to be moved? Centre is still where it should be

    I think you may have just cemented my decision to buy the Anti-Glare rather than the glass screen. It just looks... right.

    You wouldn't want to use any glossy screen after using THIS screen. You'll appreciate it once you start using it. Colors look great, and glare is not a problem anymore. Best of both worlds.

    One more thing, it is so easy on the eyes, I, for one, always had eye strains while using glossy screens. But with matte, it's a joy to use the laptop now.

    HTH.

    Cheers

    Got HDD as I'm planning to replace it with a 512GB SSD. Meanwhile, I could use the extra space.

    I never had the classic MBP, so cannot tell, but judging from the comparison photos posted here on MR, it's definitely a new model, with the increased gamut. It just looks stunning.

    sorry i meant to ask about the COATING on the screens rather than the model/type of display.

    Which screen is better out of your MBP & MBA?

    I don't like the matte, the screen looks washed out compared the Air's screen. Also the missing black bezel looks wrong. To each his own.

    Well, maybe it was the brightness settings on the 17" or the angle, but looking at this pic, not so sure which is washed out and which is not. (both are on full brightness).

    The MBP's hands down.

    As for the coating, i believe it's different.

    A lot of people don't realize that when you turn on your MBP for the first time the brightness is only at about 1/2.

    Kick it up to full on a matte screen and just admire all the beauty.

    Also, there is a HUGE difference in the look of the 1st Gen matte screen and the new matte screen. The brightness is unrivaled by far.
