It's not just the look, but the practicality of the glossy screens that is a real problem. I love the deeper blacks that come from a glossy screen- when I'm watching a movie or something entertaining. Fine for the Macbook, as a class distinction from the MBP. But when I need to match screen to print output (to the already limited extent you can on a laptop screen), it will be nearly impossible, especially when the print media isn't glossy. The MBP should have a matte option, as work machine. This is an even bigger problem with the new Cinema Display, which I assume is more calibration-friendly. It's a shame because I was waiting to buy one and now I'll have to look elsewhere, and try to snatch up an older model MBP before they disappear.

So the question isn't whether I like it, but whether I can work with it. And the answer is a resounding NO.

a side note: Apple is doing a great job of making their older models more attractive (and valuable) than the new ones. I still see the older iPhones selling for much more than the new 3G on ebay. Same with the 160GB iPods. Really strange.

Interesting last point. Especially given that the 160 GB iPods and new 120 GB iPods look almost exactly the same.
