Anyone have any thoughts about matte vs. glossy screens for the new macbook pro?
I have the 15" Glossy now and I like it. I can't really say that it's that different because the MacBook Pro screen is so much brighter than my PowerBook G4.
200GB sounds great, but keep in mind that this is a 4200RPM drive (ie. SLOW). As much as I would love the extra space, I wouldn't want the performance hit. I would stick with the 160GB drive for now.
The killer feature of the new MacBook Pros isn't the 200GB drive. It's the fact that you can now have 3GB of RAM! WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Other noteworthy improvements include:
Firewire 800 comes back on the 15" YEAH!!!!
Dual Layer burning comes back on the 15"
Yes, I'd love 3 GB of RAM. The changes to the 15" are really great, bringing back to where it belongs instead of being an overpriced MacBook.
I also agree that I would never use a 4200 rpm drive.

Makes ya wonder what chowder-head made the decision to get rid of those in the first place.

Regarding screens: I've checked them out, and I prefer the matte screen for word processing & general usage. The glossy screen offers greater contrast and color saturation.
The matte screen reflects less glare. Glare may or may not be a factor for image processing - it depends on your environment and mindset. An ardent graphics professional might possibly control ambient lighting, and possibly wear a black smock or T-shirt to reduce glare on the screen. There are so many environments and types of "graphics" vocations (e.g., the consumate presenter vs. advertising vs. web master) that the graphics operator would have to apply their needs to the best screen choice.
Regarding Screens: As the backlight brightness drops, a matte screen is obscured by light from any direction. The glossy screen can usually be oriented to avoid specific sources. If you sit with your back to a window, glossy wins.
I have a glossy screen MacBook........very happy with it. I will never buy a matte screen again.
