Without making any official mention on its website, Apple brought the anti-reflective screen (aka anti-glare or matte) back to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, as an option to be selected in the product setup process on the Apple Store Online. As with the 17-inch model, the option adds an extra $ 50 to the order and removes the bezel black around the screen, offering a complete aluminum finish.
The initiative goes according to a rumor that we released here on a few weeks ago. Domestic consumers do not usually twist their noses at a monitor or notebook with a finishing screen glossy incidentally, the 13 inch model remains with only one screen option. Even in the professional market, the opinion about its use is varied, but, even so, the change should reduce the great amount of complaints coming from this sector on the subject.
The move to new shiny displays was introduced in the iMac two years ago and hit the company's line of laptops last year. To serve more demanding customers, there has always been a screen option matte for the 17-inch MacBook Pro, but with this extension to mid-sized models, the number of complaints is expected to drop significantly.
The only problem is that this option is only available when configuring a product on the Apple Store Online. Who knows here we may not be able to take advantage of that, right?
