They just released the new Macbook Pros.
And guess what...you can't choose matt displays anymore.
What on earth were they thinking?

Only 13.3" displays as well... I can't live with less than 17" with 1920px hi-res glory...

Meh. Who uses the built-in display of any laptop for critical photo work? The real pisser, IMO, is that the new 24" external display is glossy only. Looks like Apple is either giving up on matte, or they're saving it for MWSF in January.

You mean only 15" displays for the MB Pro. The 17" still exists, but not in the refresh.

My main complaint about the MB is the lack of Firewire.

No FW is silly.
13.3" would have been nice to replace my 12" PB G4. Ah well...

From engaget live coverage:

10:57AM Q: What's up with the 17-inch?
A: Tim: It's being refreshed today as well.

11:01AM Q: Concern about the glossy screens. Are you going to offer another option?
A: Steve: We're going all glass -- we won't offer another version. Phil: You offset the reflection by the brightness, and consumers love it. One of the great things about a notebook is you can turn it however you want!

11:03AM Q: You've put a lot of work into the new touchpad, do touchscreens not make sense?
A: Steve: so far it hasn't made a lot of sense to us.

Technically now there is a 13", 15", and 17" macbookpro. Although the screen thing still sucks. And come on, no tablet mac STILL.

This:

and consumers love it

Sums it all up.
Apple are going after the main stream consumer, and it is well proven that consumers like shiney things.

I'm just going to slap on a anti-glare sticker on the glossy screen. Works great!

So whats the difference in performance between the 15in pro and the 13.3in...I would much rather the smaller 13.3 in with an external monitor than the 15in

If you keep the window behind the screen you will not have any glare problems. I have three windows in my office and no glare problems.
