If I sound indecisive, it's because I am. I currently own a 2007 MacBook Pro with a matte finish and it's time to upgrade. I love the MBPR, but as a student the most important part is the combination between portability and power. A matte finish is also very important because I use my laptop in many non-ideal environments. I've seen the Retina in person, but it comes no where near my matte finish in terms of glare reflections. I really got my hope up when Apple claimed "75% glare reduction." I can't decided whether to get the thin MacBook Pro with Retina Display or the larger and heavier MacBook Pro with a matte finish. I would love to here you thoughts, opinions, and/ or advice. For those who don't feel like writing a post, I made a poll.
