New [Glossy] MacBooks
I decided to stop by my local, friendly Apple store Saturday, to take a look-see at the new MacBooks released earlier this week. Ooooh! Shiney! Me likey. There’s just one problem. They’re too shiney. Seriously. The glare coming off of these things is just too much. I’m sure it’s something you can get used to, but why should you have to? I can live without the missing Firewire port everyone seems to be up in arms over, but the lack of a matte finish, is, well, a glaring omission.
I will say however, the new 24″ LED display was beautiful, and would be awesome to watch digital media on, assuming you can adequately control the lighting behind you.
I’ll eventually have to upgrade to a newer machine; Hopefully by then, a matte finish will at least be a build to order option.
