    Just bought a MBP 15' Screen, 2.2GHz i7.
    Love it big time.
    However I notice a significant glare from screen.
    Didn't have this issue with my old MBP.

    Any solutions to reduce glare?

    thanks.

    Hi-res anti-glare screen for extra $150.

    My local apple store carries demo units and possibly in stock but you might need to order them specially online.

    I have a anti-glare film on mine (was about 10 dollars on ebay; cheap solution!), was an absolute bitch to install I don't know how the people on utube did it no problem lol I did it in a steamy bathroom went well but not as quick as the utube ones lol. Well worth it if you hate glare in bright rooms. I'll take pictures some time later for you

    Don't know if its a fair comparison with my iphone's glossy screen vs a anti glare macbook film but I think it would be near similar

    I'm using a cheap AG film (~$12) bought from eBay and it works! The installation wasn't as easy as it seemed on youtube video clips, though. The con is now with the AG film the screen is a little dull (had to increase the brightness to match my preference).
