Apple Sneaks in Anti-Glare Option for 15-Inch Macbook Pro

by Lambert Varias

Yep, people who buy the 15-inch Macbook Pro now have the option to ditch the glossy display for one with an anti-glare coating. As with the 17-inch Macbook Pro, the anti-glare coating costs an extra $50 (USD). Glad to know that the angry commenting mob still has something to bitch about.

It’s funny how the description makes it sound like Apple is sulking. After an adjective filled description of the glossy display, all they have to say about the option is “or an optional antiglare display.” Maybe they should add “Go ahead, you moron. Pay us $50 so you can miss out on all the awesomeness.” Seriously though I think Apple should stop acting like a child and elaborate on the pros and cons of the displays. By re-introducing this option they’re already conceding that point anyway. Might as well help customers decide.

    While I love the LOOK of glossy displays, and the contrast seems better, I hate the fingerprints and glare. My HP TouchSmart is a massive fingerprint magnet thanks to a glossy screen that you actually are encouraged to put your fingers all over.

    In some countries in Europe (Austria for example) it is forbidden by law to use glare displays in offices. I think this is the real reason, why Apple offers anti-glare.

    All the business devices from HP, Lenovo or others have anti-glare displays with a good reason.
