15in MacBook Pro Matte LCD
Apple on Tuesday quietly addressed the concerns of some notebook buyers by adding a matte display option for the 15-inch MacBook Pro. Similar to the choice that launched with the 17-inch model (pictured), the feature replaces the glossy glass screen and bezel with a more conventional metal bezel and separate anti-glare panel. The option is available across all three 15-inch systems.
Again like the 17-inch computer, choosing the display adds $50 to the base price of a given system. Whether Apple will carry matte-finish 15-inch MacBook Pro units at retail is unknown, but selecting the option extends the shipping delay to between two and four business days at the online Apple Store.
