    Problems? I don't think that either one is problematic, it's a matter of personal choice...

    As far as I am aware, the matte screens have no problems and the glossy have no problems. The yellowing issue I think is disappearing (can somebody confirm this?)

    i was in your position last year, choosing between matte and glossy. people said glossy made your eyes strain, matte was easier to look at, etc etc. and i looked way too far into it. I ended up going with what i loved most (look-wise) - the glossy - and i've never looked back. glossy is the best. go with the one you think looks best!

    I had a Glossy SR mbp with a yellowish screen and now have a perfect Matte SR mbp.
    Glossy was a Samsung
    Matte is a LG
