I need a computer so bad. Was really hoping they would make matte available in the new lineup of macbooks whenever they were released. Cannot stand the glassy or glossy. I have a 5 year old Powerbook that I desperately wanted to upgrade and was ready to pull the trigger yesterday on a purchase. I will not buy a matte. I can understand that Apple is moving to consumers, but there are a lot of us who refuse to buy the damn mirror screens. I understand if a small set of customers wanted an option and the lack of commercial viability to make everyone happy. But every poll seems to show that mac fans want a matte option. You'd think Apple would have addressed that. I've had it, I'm just going to spend the money on 3rd party HDD and RAM to make this puppy last longer. Too bad that Apple is leaving so much money on the table from those of us refusing to buy mirror.
