  1. Weird. I have no glaring/reflection problems with my gorgeous, delicious, wonderful, yummy glossy MacBook screen. Maybe I’m just not allergic to that small amount of reflection there actually is.

  2. Mr. Reeee said: “The MacBooks are fantastic, but when I first saw the glossy screens I was horrified. i can’t imagine trying to find just the right viewing angle under far from ideal light conditions.”

    Well, I’m typing this response to your sensationalism in a Starbucks with tons of trendy, art deco types tights. The screen is reflecting some light (no surprise). However, it is easy to read and the colours are lush. “horrified”? please. You haven’t seen real horror I guess.

    To each is own®. As for MacMania and his affiliates, we love the rich, saturated colours and brightness of the new MacBooks.

    Rock on Steve!

  3. titan, I think what andy was getting at was that sources and journalists might lump MacBooks and MacBook Pros in together and just call them all MacBooks. So when you get stories like this, there’s uncertainty about whether they’re referring to the entire portable range.
