John Siracusa on MacBook's glossy display

And we all shine on:

Maybe you don't think glare is an issue. Maybe you always view the screen head-on in perfectly diffuse lighting. Maybe you think the benefits of the glossy screen outweigh the drawbacks. Whatever the reason, we'll just have to agree to disagree on this issue. You can probably stop reading now.

As I mentionned before, this is probably the one showstopper for me. I'll have to try it in person to judge properly, though.

At least on MacBook Pro its an option:

MacBook Pro offers an antiglare coated widescreen display that’s perfect for color-minded professionals. For a more immersive viewing experience, you can configure MacBook Pro with a glossy finish. This gives everything you see a richer, more saturated feel.
