Apple adds glossy screen option to 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro

From the Apple Store’s 15- and 17-inch MacBook Pro “customize your Mac” section:

At no extra charge, you can choose a glossy widescreen display that lets you view graphics, photos, and videos with greater color saturation.

Choose the glossy widescreen display to make your graphics, photos, and videos appear with richer color and deeper blacks — great for watching DVD movies. If you prefer a display with anti-glare coating for a matte rather than glossy viewing experience, choose the standard widescreen display.

Both widescreen displays are significantly brighter than previous Apple notebooks. The 15-inch MacBook Pro is 67% brighter than the 15-inch PowerBook G4, and the 17-inch model is 36% brighter than the 17-inch PowerBook G4.

  1. Many people like the glossy screen. I had a friend of mine all set to buy a mac but she got a PC because it had a glossy screen. There wasn’t any other reason than the gloss. The fact that windows was a pain couldn’t sway her. At least she got some free anti-virus with her machine. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />
