I've always had anti-glare screens on my previous MacBook Pros and PowerBooks, so I thought this would be a good change of pace. No regrets at all. Yes, you can see some reflections, however I believe the glass is polarized to reduce the impact of reflections and glare.
Of course if you have a big, bright window at your back then you are going to have issues, but in most cases it should be fine. The screen appears clearer and more vibrant on a glossy screen.
I prefer the silver bezel, as well. I'd like to see the new models bring back the silver keys and bezel and hinge... the all-silver look... at least as an option.

this is random but do u miss the macbook pro logo on the screen? lol
Sometimes..... but then I pick it up and look at the logo on the bottom. It's not quite the same but sometimes you just have to make the sacrifice and carry on. I'll never forget that logo though.
The clarity of the screen makes up for the increase in glare by the way. When I looked at it in the store I didn't think it would be all that much of an improvement but it really is.
I have bright fluorescent lights behind me and get no glare at all. Matte screens get WAY more glare! Everytime I work somewhere that has matte screens and open windows I am completely blinded.
This is going to sound like a dumb reason, but one of the reasons why I stuck with the cMBP was for the silver bezel look of the AG. Now, I didn't base all of my decision on that, but it definitely was a factor.
My friend recently got a rMBP and I have to say as much I like it, I don't have any buyers remorse on my cMBP, and I think it's because of the AG silver bezel look. I just wanted to see something different from all the other macbook pros i've seen in college, which mainly have been the glossy glass look. I know either way, I'm getting good performance in whichever system I choose, but now I'm narrowing it down by the nit-picky stuff like looks of the system.
i think ur making stuff up cause matte screens when there ON show no glare when behind windows an stuff.
