I am not a power user so base models are fine for me. However like many people I wanted the most for my money so I opted to wait for the upgrade and go with the new low end 15" and anti glare. What is frustrating to me is that the low end 15" with anti glare is now $1950. First they remove anti glare as a standard option and charge $50 more for it. Now not only is the low end model $100 more, they now charge $150!! for anti glare (yes I am aware of the spec increase but it's not needed in my case thus I don't want to pay for more resolution) I guess I will watch the refurb store for an old model with antiglare but I am disappointed that I waited 4 months for this. I know many people prefer matte screens and do not like this trend toward them being a "premium" option. Man...I don't want to buy a PC but this is a real letdown.
