Default Matte is back

The MBP 15" is now available in matte/antiglare again.

Thank goodness for that. I thought I was gonna have to use my old one for years to come, or fork out for a display.

What on earth were they thinking?

I hate shiny screen with a passion. Brighter my ass. I hope the others will bring them back too. Until then, I'll just have to reduce the amount of work time directly on the lappy :B

at a guess, they were thinking "make sure it looks as new as the PC junk on the next shelf".

Can't lag behind visible trends like shiny/wide/big/small eh.

I'm looking forward to getting a matte 15" MBP next year. These glossy screens are shit in a well lit office.

I guess I'll have to break out the matte screen protectors.
