I wonder which computer to buy. I wonder which model better for photography ?
Both are 2.0 Ghz
Macbook 13 led glossy screen, other is 15.4 matte.
I will use it for photography...

I have the glossy, and really like it, but to be honest the matte would suit me better currently. It depends how much control you have over your lighting setup.

I went and looked at the mbp 17's matte and glossy side by side to compare to my dell xps 17 display and was amazed on how much more "vibrant" the glossy screen was than the matte.

We got glossy. Works fine in the bars it gets used in after a day of shooting. It's a personal choice, if you can get to an Apple store you can check them out side by side - in a very well lit setting. Get the bigger screen if you can afford it.

Always go with a Macbook Pro over a Macbook if you care about the display. Apple used the same crappy panels in the Macbooks as everyone else does.

I love love love the matte. I'd never go back. It's the only reason I chose the 15" screen for my laptop rather than 13.

One more vote for the matte. Looking at my ugly face reflecting back at me in the glossy screen was more than I could bear!

Matte's good but glossy makes presentation easier.
