    I might buy a new MBP whenever it comes out, but I'm scared if it will be glossy only. :rolleyes:
    Maybe I just should buy now with matte screen, hmm. :confused:

    The MBP was just updated in June, don't expect an update for some time. You can chose either a matte or glossy screen. Head over to this page.

    They would lose a ton of their artistic customers if Appple only made glossy screens. They dont want to do that.

    I cant see that ever happening.

    I doubt that the pro machines and the cinema displays will go to a glossy-only configuration. Like others have said, Apple would want to give the option to those users whether or not they want something that displays colors in a more traditional sense like a matte screen or one that alters the colors like a glossy screen.

    Personally, I hate the glossy screens and it is my sole reason why my next computer will not be a MacBook but rather a MacBook Pro.

    I dont think they will ever become glossy because some people that use the "Pro" models would much rather have a matte display rather than glossy because matte displays "true" color. If they did go all glossy (which I don't think will ever happen), I will just buy a refurb.

    I do have a question, is there is cost difference for Apple to make consumer products glossy to save money? Just wondering.

    There's no way to know, so its no use worrying about it.
