My MBP arrived yesterday. I have always chosen matte screens on my previous laptops, because of all the criticism of glossy ones on here and elsewhere, but decided this wasn't worth jumping ship over. Well, I don't know what the hell I was thinking these past few years. The screen is goddamn fantastic. It's like looking at a photograph. It has bright and clear whites, deep, dark blacks, and rich, vibrant colors. I've spent the past hour looking through my photo library just because they look so goddamn good on this screen. I have a 24", 1920x1200 LCD that I haven't used in two days because I like this one better. Yeah, occasionally you can glimpse a reflection of something in a dark area on your screen. Big freaking deal. It's not like it obscures what you're looking at - you have to adjust the focus of your eyes to even see it. As for color accuracy - I'm no pro, but it seems to me that the colors on the glossy screen are better than those on my old matte screen, because there is no matte coating that produces a diffuse reflection from every stray piece of light that hits it. No way I'm ever going back to matte. I'm eyeing that 24" LED screen Apple is coming out with as well... The rest of the laptop is amazing as well - it's built like a tank, looks amazing - and there is no more miserable, finicky metal latch.
