    I prefer the glossy, but I can see why people like the matte screens too. People saying that glossy screens aren't as accurate don't mention the fact that screen calibration is the most important factor in getting accurate colors. Once calibrated, it's a personal preference whether you prefer the matte/glossy screen

    My mac book is glossy and I dont see much of a diference from my former iBook. Well, it's a richer colour and noticeably brighter. But matte screens on Macbook pros would be just as bright and not reflect. I dont mind my glossy macbook screen. But if i had a choice, i would get a bright matte.

    I'll go matte anytime.

    I've used my friends' MacBooks and I wasn't impressed. Too much reflection.

    I have a macbook ... i wish there was a matte version. I'm a photographer and the glossy screen does not give true colors!!! which is very important when colors matter. =/ so now I'm resulting to buying an LCD to edit the photos.

    but the glossy does look pretty nice. even in day light.

    Glossy is going to be much better outside because it cuts down the glare quite a bit. If you are an outdoorsman, get the glossy version.

    Matte all the way. Tires ur eyes less and if youre doing any sort of professional work, matte gives u a 'true-r' colour.

    since its shiny..wouldn't it add glare? I thought that was the main issue with glossy.
