    There is no option in apple store configuration to choose glossy or antiglare for rMBP, so, Retina screen is Mirror screen or matte screen?

    It is a glossy display with supposedly 75% reduction in glare from previous glossy Macbook Pros.

    If you really want the no-reflection antiglare display you have to go with one of the non-retina 15" models.

    It's less glossy than conventional glossy screens, but you can still make it look like a mirror at certain angles. Only fix to the rMBP will be a screen protector.
