    I just got my 15" MBP. I love it except I do a lot of my work on the bus to and from work or school. I am getting a TON of glare. I was wondering how well does the anti-glare film work. What are the prose and cons?

    I believe the consensus has been that they're all fairly crap.
    Do a search and you'll see that people aren't usually totally satisfied with them.

    I have, and you're better off with the glare than using a film.

    I thought about it but there is no way I could justify the extra money

    Sounds like justification enough, no?

    Strange. I have a 13" glossy MBP and I don't get any glare...:confused:

    I used an anti-glare film for about 45 minutes before pulling it off. I'm mostly fine with the glossy screen, but if I had do-overs, I'd go for the AG screen option.

    I'm thinking of having an 1/8" thick piece of glass cut so it'll sit just inside the rubber gasket around the edge of the screen and treating it with some sort of AG coating. I'll post results if I do.
