    Just wondering if an anti glare film will work when viewing my MacBook Pro outdoors or do I need something else. Thanks.

    Well they have the best antiglare coating in the business on the screen already so I'm not sure how they will work together, give it a try and let us know.

    Which MBPro do you have?

    I wouldn't put ANY type of anti-glare or protective film on a retina MacBook Pro.

    The matte coating on their displays seems to be so fragile that it could be pulled off, or interact with the adhesive on the film (if there is any).

    Might be best to "look for a shady spot", and then put up with the glare...

    I tried a screen film for about 2 minutes - I did not like it.
