...that is the question.

Sooo Im in the market for a 17" MBP (im making the big leap from desktop to laptop too). Ive heard lots of mix review about this new glossy screen...what do you guys think? Im going to be using the laptop for mostly science research, photo editing, and some gameing here and there.

If at all possible, see them (the glossy ones) in a store. You really need to see them to tell if you love them, hate them, or don't care either way. Me? I'm not a fan, but they might grow on me.

I didn't think I'd like the glossy screen, but after using my MacBook for a week now I can say I like it much better than my old, dull ibook screen.
