    I just ordered my 15" MBP
    2.2GHz, 2Gb RAM, Geforce 8600GT 128MB.

    I couldn't decide between matte screen or glossy - thought i'd prefer glossy.
    I ordered today, and because I live in South Africa, I was told the glossy would take approximately 2 months, whereas the matte would be sooner (latest 3 weeks)

    Anyway, I went for the matte option because I don't want to wait 2 months for my laptop! I hope I've made the right choice

    I'm personally a matte fanboy; but glossy does seem to have a richer picture. Colors seem a bit more vibrant; enjoy!

    Lucky you - I'm dying to buy that machine but can't justify it when my PC works okay...

    Having a PC should be all the justification you need.

    I have a glossy screen on my Gateway laptop and absolutely hate it. The glare is horrible.

    PC glossies are a LOT different from Apple's, just FYI.

    Good choice going with matte. I have glossy on my MacBook (only option available for those), and I hate it. The glare is very annoying. My MBP however has a matte screen and I couldn't love it more :)
