Meant for this to be a follow-up in the "Introducing MacBook" post.
I just noticed on Apple's website that you can choose the glossy screen now with the MacBook Pro 15 inch (didn't check the 17).
I guess it just comes down to preference - do you mind a little glare for a crisper, more saturated look. I'm not sure I will but I want to see it first. I guess I don't tend to use laptops in bright situations anyhow.
