What It Looks Like – New Matte 15" MacBook Pro

When Apple announced the unibody MacBook Pro, I ordered one immediately after to replace my aging MacBook Pro. It was a great machine except for the new screen design that Apple adopted, a LED-backlit LCD seated behind a sheet of thin and highly reflective glass that made outdoor use and work in bright environments nearly impossible because of reflections.

Luckily, this week – Apple decided to offer a matte “anti-glare” display option on the 15″ MacBook Pro. I purchased one Friday night from the Apple Store and am posting a few pictures here since it seems to be mildly elusive and CTO MacBook Pros from the website haven’t shipped yet. Thus far, I’m really enjoying it. Take a look below.

It looks very similar to the pre-unibody MacBook Pro. Wider bezel than the 17″.

  3. Justin Taylor,

    What’s your impression on the color? I have a unibody 15 with the glossy and I have a terrible time getting the color right. Also any chance you could post an image with a white background, my screen looks great on anything above 50% grey but white is horrible. On top of that after calibrating with 2 different pro calibrating tools and by eye. I still have a pinkish hue on white, its not that noticeable unless plugged into my 23 ADC which looks fabulous compared to the Macbook Pro.

  4. Hi,

    Is the matte option just a film they apply on the glossy screen? or do they totally use another material for the screen altogether?

  5. Daniel,

    Updates on the MBP right now. Thats an order private.
