One of our main complaints in our review of the latest 15-inch MacBook Pro was the lack of a matte screen option, as offered on the 17-inch model. Matte screens are better for designers who require colour accuracy, as well as minimizing glare in bright conditions. Now Apple has let us know that it has re-added the option of an Antiglare Widescreen Display to its 15-inch MacBook Pro.
The MacBook Pro 13-inch model doesn’t currently offer a similar display option according to the Apple Store listings.
The new £35 plus VAT configuration option can be selected when ordering on from Apple Store.
The option reads as follows:
"The 15-inch MacBook Pro comes with a 1440-by-900-pixel LED-backlit display. Choose a standard glossy display that lets you view graphics, photos, and videos with richer colours and deeper blacks, or an optional antiglare display."
"Choose the glossy widescreen display to make your graphics, photos, and videos appear with richer colours and deeper blacks -- great for watching DVD movies. If you prefer a display with antiglare coating for a matte rather than glossy viewing experience, choose the antiglare widescreen display."
"Important note:?The actual size of the display is the same (15-inch diagonal) on both models. The antiglare display has a silver frame (border) around the display."
