    Hey guys,

    Haven't seen much discussion or a thread about this yet. I'm interested in RMBP in few weeks, figured I'd ask about the screen reflection. I was hoping for an Anti-glare but no option. Apple did say its 70% less reflective than the previous glossy screen. Got to go by a store to check it out I guess....

    What do some of you lucky guys that got one already think of the screen glare? Would it be same glare as Retina iPad? Or?....

    I saw one at the store the other day and the glare is dramatically better between the two.

    I went to the Apple store last night to check it out. Definitely not the same as the anti-glare option but when I was using it, I did not notice the glare from the lights above until I consciously remembered to check how much reduction in glare there actually was on the new screen and even then, it didn't seem to distract me at all.

    I was originally planning on getting the anti-glare model last year but waited after hearing about the redesign rumors but now, personally, I probably would have bought this display over an anti-glare option since I prefer the glass display but on the old model, it was just too damn glossy.
