Apple is now offering those interested in the 15 inch MacBook an option for a matte screen. It will set you back $50. That’s right. In order to view your screen without seeing your reflection in a glossy screen, it will cost you $50. I know I rant on and on about glossy screens and glossy cases, but to me it is really a question of aesthetics. I’ve never understood why you would create a beautiful looking piece of hardware (and I’m not just talking Apple here, many others are equally guilty) that is tough to view and attracts fingerprints like crazy.
I just don’t get it.
