not for me

I'll pass on this one. I think this product is only directed at a fairly small market segment: people who travel a lot and have to lug their laptops around all the time.
Besides, a glossy screen! Brrr. You can see a reflection even in the demo on the apple site! Not to mention the other obvious detractors: no firewire, no separate ethernet jack and of course no DVD drive. A definite pass here.

I purchased a MacBook Pro after trying out both matte and glossy screens intensely. To me, glossy reflects a perfect superimposed reflected image on top of the screen, while matte blurs out the reflected light sources.

The matte reflection seemed harder to ignore. The human brain is capable of looking at two superimposed images and removing one of them alot better than it can ignore the wash-out effect of matte reflection. This is of course a personal choice, but I am far less distracted with the glossy.
