    The glossy screens just get dirty quicker!

    Sunlight, fingerprints and glossy screens just don't play nicely together.

    i would have non glossy as others have said they just a pain as they get dirty quick and if you have sunlight behind you they are a pain, as all you see is a reflection of whats behind you.

    I have a glossy MBP and a non-glossy imac. I prefer the MBP screen myself. Colours are a lot more vivid and deep.

    Need option for Non-Glossy

    I am happy that others like the Glossy screen. But please, don't force one on me. I would not buy a glossy screen. Over saturated bigger than life colors are fine for web browsing but not for graphics or photography, and there needs to be an option for MBP and Cinema Display. How Apple could think otherwise boggles the mind.

    All of you that are happy, just allow us to go our own way, because we have good reason to want a more accurate display.
