MacBooks Use Glossy Screens

I mentioned this a few months ago, that many PC manufacturers have switched to glossy laptop displays and I that I was glad the then-new PowerBooks hadn’t switched. A lot of readers wrote in to say that they like glossy displays, because they make blacks blacker and whites whiter, but many others wrote in to agree with me that they find the glare distracting.

Update: The new glossy screen finish is also now available as a BTO option on the MacBook Pros, as well — but they do still default to the traditional non-glossy displays.
