    I was just wondering why the 13 mbp doesn't have a anti-glare option, and looking for opinions on if you would get a 13mbp anti-glare

    Perhaps the 13" is not viewed as a serious "Pro"
    giving the feature only to those who can more likely afford it in the first place since they are getting the 15" and 17"



    bigger badder GPU CPU = higher price = professionals(or just persons with money) = more likely to get AG

    who knows

    I would place a wager that about 50% of persons getting a 13" MBP are just those who can't afford the extra $600 or so bucks to leap to the bottom end 15"

    Apple has not given any reason, and since the 13" MacBooks all were kinda glossy from the beginning since 2006, it kinda fits.

    Yeah, I guess it's not quite a pro laptop. Just seems like a good idea to offer it.

    Antiglare is viewed as a "Pro" type option. Photographers are not going to really do serious work on a 13 inch screen that is low resolution. The AG option is to provide the user with more accurate colour reproduction on the screen so it more closely matches printed images on paper.

    The 13 is a consumer level computer, the decision to tag it with the Pro title on the end of Macbook is a marketing ploy to make the average consumer or first time Apple customer feel / think they are getting a Pro level machine.

    Maybe it's because as a general rule (well, my general rule ;)) reflections become more bothersome the bigger the screen.

    or they just want a smaller, lighter, more portable computer. That's why I went from a 15" powerbook to a 13" MBP. It's much easier to carry a 13" MBP around class/campus/library rather than a 15" MBP.
