On tuesday, Apple began offering the anti-glare matte display on the new 15" Macbook pro. Last month it was reported that Apple was considering offering the Matte finish on additional Macbooks other than the 17" Macbook Pro.
Apple apparently was following consumer complaints about color matching issues and distracting glare under bright conditions. Love it or hate it, you now have a choice between the glossy finish or the matte finish.
To get a real feel for the difference you should go to your local Apple store and compare the two side by side. It seems that Apple once again thought they knew exactly what consumers needed only to have to change the design of the Macbook to accommodate the consumer backlash for missing options.
Is it only a matter of time before the 13" macbook pro has this option?
Time will only tell. Thanks again Apple for listening.
