Replace That Glossy Screen

"Users have a love/hate relationship with Apple's glossy displays. Namely, they either love them or they hate them. I haven't used one myself, as I'll be hanging on to my original MacBook Pro until it ceases to work."

I guess I'm in the "love" side of the love/hate angle. I've never had a problem with the glossy screen on my MBP or my MBA, but I don't usually use them outside or where there are bright lights. If I did and it bothered me, this is one option to fix it. So if you have a a 13" MacBook Pro and want the matte screen, TechRestore will do it for $200.00 USD. They promise a 24 hour turnaround but you don't get your old screen back.

15-inch MacBook Pro Gets Anti-Glare, For a Price

"Confirming an AppleInsider exclusive tip from less than a month ago, Apple has restored the antiglare upgrade option -- at a cost of $50 -- for its 15-inch MacBook Pro line."

The only MacBook Pro model left without this option is now the 13-inch version. All my laptops have the glossy screen, but I can see that there is definitely a difference that might be bothersome depending on the type of work you do with your Mac. I haven't been bothered enough to pay extra for the anti-glare, but it is always good to have options!

Relief Is On The Way For Glossy Hatas

"ClearCal AG (anti-glare) films greatly improve the viewability of glossy glass displays when used in brightly lit or outdoor environments. ClearCal films combine a tempered 2-mil matte finished, anti-reflection layer, permanently laminated to a 3-mil flexible transparent base. A blemish-healing siliconized adhesive provides an optically-correct, yet easily removable bond that conceals existing surface defects like abrasions and scratches. The siliconized adhesive is permanently bonded to the base layer and will never leave any residue behind if later removed."

Well there you have it. If you're one of those folks who just can't live with the glossy display, this might be your solution. I think I may pick one up just to see if it does what it says it does, but it does work in the marketing materials and we know that that always translates into real-world experience.
