  1. They are offering a discount to crybaby asswipes who still whine about matte screens on MacBooks … the deal is this … zero off. They don’t make em, wahhhhhhhhhhh hahahahahahahahah

  2. @ Rattymouse,

    You can still buy the 17″ MacBook Pro with a matte screen,

    Or buy a matte screen cover for a new MacBook,

    Or buy a Mac Pro and buy a matte monitor,

    Or buy a new MacBook and buy a separate matte monitor,

    Or buy an iMac and fit a matte screen cover,

    Or buy a Mac mini and buy a matte monitor.

    Think Different™

  3. I’m on your side, but you really should consider the refurb. Decide what you want, then just wait for a deal on it… there are some good ones. You get new case/keyboard/mouse, and everything else is refreshed. Not sure if the battery in notebooks is new or not. But you save a lot of money. Get a refurb older Mac Pro for a great deal. If you need a notebook, wait for a previous-gen 15″ MBPro, or just get the current 17″ now.

    There are still options. They’re not a new MBP, but they will work.

    And, to those of you who keep talking about those matte films to put on glossy/glass screens: sure, for casual use, but for professional use, they suck, I’ve tried them. So, Jaime, there’s 2 of your options out the window. Still, there are options.

  4. @Rattymouse,

    While not a photographer myself, I do edit video and create 3D motion graphics, so it is fair to say that we are in similar fields wherein the quality of our display is important to us.

    Having said that, I have been using a glossy screen for a while now, and have grown accustomed to it. I suspect that you will have to as well, as the time is coming where matte screens on any computer will be considered old school.

    You can be as angry about it as you like, but it doesn’t change the reality; glossy screen finishes are starting to replace matte as the default. If it is the glare that bothers you (presumably because you are doing a great deal of field work) then, an anti-glare film is your solution. If it is the increased contrast that gets under your skin, then you just need to put the new machine next to the old one and re-calibrate the display to match the color space you are accustomed to working in.

    Bottom line, if you need a new computer, and you can afford it, there is no reason not to. Don’t be stubborn, adapt ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”wink” style=”border:0;” />

  5. Anyone know yet if there is an easy way to connect an LED Cinema display to the mini-DVI port on my black Macbook? I would love to get one if this is not too much to ask.

  6. I recently received the US version of this ad. It’s different from the NZ ad. There’s no mention of Christmas or the holidays, just the “one day shopping event”.

  7. I am a photographer and decided to risk a macbook, its sat next to the old 17inch with matte screen and I have to say the its not as bad as I feared, indeed i have plumped for the new 24 inch monitor as well, lighting conditions in my office mean there are not lots of reflections so its not an issue, but new macbook screen is also so bright that even in strong sun it holds its own.
