As a Graphic Designer the Gloswsy Screens that have been out on the market in the past several years look all nice and fancy on display in the store - but that is all_

They are impractical in a real world environment_ Unless the global lighting is way down in any given location or the viewer is immediately in front of the display they give off relections from any nearby light source_ ANd the viewer is no longer able to see the content on the screen_

So if 2 or more people are sitting around a glossy display - the less likely they are going to be able to see the screen_

I tend to work with my monitors at a slight upward angle as opposed to straight up and down vertical and I have lighting directly over my sitting area - a glossy screen would wash out the view_

Even in Apple's own Special Presentation when they showed off the monitor the added in a "glossy" effect over the top right od the display [I guess for simulation effect] and it washed out 30% of the screen_

I'd might be inclined to grab a new MBP up down the road if a Apple either adds back in a Non-Gloss Display or a 3rd Party Company begins producing the option_

I think we should get the word out and begin complaining to Apple_ If they get enough response they tend to listen to their customers_

Especially here at MOSXH Rob and his exploits are known around the "Mac Community" and this seems like a good place to "light the fire"_
