    Well,this is kinda funny....

    I don't know what screen am i having on my MBP....:eek:

    I didn't order myself my MBP.I sent my aunt to do this but i was specific:matte,not glossy.

    I haven't seen a glossy screen ever so i don't know if i'm having a glossy one.Although it seems different from my 15 MBP i'm not sure if it's because the size....Oh,the current one seems glossy!!

    So,do you know any ways to determine?

    Fuzzy reflections=matte
    Horribly clear glaring of any light source=glossy

    With your computer off and open, position yourself in front of it with a light source above and behind you. Can you effectively use your screen as a dark mirror?

    Yes -> you have glossy.
    No -> you have matte.

    If your screen is shiney, you have glossy. If your screen is dull, you have matte.

    I prefer glossy on my notebooks and matte on my desktop screens where I do color critical work.

    Maybe you should have looked up "glossy" in the dictionary.
