    I've been searching high and low for the last-gen MBs with matte screens, but on all the clearance sections and reseller sites I've seen, I can only find glossy MBs. Which modes have matte screens, or is there a site that sells MBs with matte screens?

    MacBooks have always had Glossy screen only.

    Only the MBP's had a matte finish, glossy option, until this current release, which is glossy only.

    Almost- in the latest release, the 17" is a superHD matte screen.

    This is the only macbook I've seen with a matte screen.

    You can however get a film to go over the top of the screen to make it matte. I don't mind the one I have on mine, kinda used to it now. But others will undoubtedly hate them.

    The 17inch MBP is still the 'old' design, and is still available in matte.. but I think its days are numbered..

    That is a pretty cool link to a great solution. If we were all that savvy.

    Yea, the all MBs, regardless of unibody or polycarbonate are glossy.
