So after extensive research and in-store viewing of glossy or antiglare... I still don't know. And I've searched through this forum quite well. But i just don't know how a glossy will serve me for what i need to do. I've been using an old mbp that only ever had a matte screen available and before that i had a PowerBook. So i guess i'm used to a matte screen so i thought maybe something different would be good and thought about getting glossy. But lots posts here swayed me into thinking antiglare would be best. After all, it is what im used to. But it's true, color is more vivid on glossy. But i won't be looking at photos or video for the majority of usage. Much more text based stuff. But is antiglare better for this or is it just a myth that it is and glossy is just fine with no eye strain? Also, what about i5 or i7 for my uses? I will be doing software development and web design work (Xcode, adobe stuff -Photoshop, fireworks, illustrator, running a vm for windows). With plenty of web surfing and hulu. Also using 90% of the time indoors. So.... What to do.... Thanks in advance for everyone's help, it's my biggest purchase and matters most for my work and life so I want to make sure it's right. Ps. I'm set on the 17" for the biggest resolution.
