The age old question, which do you prefer and why?
of what? paint? casing? screen?
Screen. Glossy screen, or Matte screen for the MacBook Pro.
I've heard a few horror stories regarding glossy screens, so I'm going to stick to the matte for my upcoming MacBook Pro purchase.
Unfortunately, not had the chance to use a glossy screen yet, though from what I've read, it seems to all come down to personal opinion, and how each user utilises their machine.
Personally I really dig the glossy screen of my MacBook. Its much much better for movies and such
I like the glossy screen better then the mat
I am just afraid to clean it
I clean my glossy screen with eyeglass wipes
Same here. I've been meaning to buy some iClear polish and a soft cloth for a while now.
I don't have a strong preference, but I do like the glossy screen on my MacBook. The only place it's a problem is outside in the glaring sun -- but I don't often use mine in that setting.
Did not have the glossy at the Mac store, so instead I got the matte. I am really happy with my new laptop
Congratulations! So what did you get, exactly?
I think the colours are much richer on glossy screens, but u get more light reflected off it compared to matte screens.
Apple MacBook Pro 2.33 Ghz, 2 GB ram, 120 GB HD, ATI x1600, Core 2 Duo off course .
I do like the colors a tad more on glossy screens but the amount of light it reflects just makes it annoying to me.
I ended up going with the matte for my macbook pro and like it. I always look around the room when my professor is ranting incoherently and notice everyone else uses a glossy screen on their PC / Mac. All the lights from the room reflect off of the screen as well as their face / everyone behind them.
