Apple Again Offers Matte Display Option on 15" MacBook Pro

Engadget reports that Apple is again offering an antiglare matte display option on the 15" MacBook Pro. As with the matte display for the 17" MacBook Pro, the option costs $50.

A report last month claimed that Apple was considering bringing back the antiglare matte option on additional Macs beyond the 17" MacBook Pro in the wake of criticism from users regarding color matching issues and distracting glare under bright conditions with Apple's standard glossy displays. Apple reportedly had been following various petitions and discussions regarding the complaints and was planning to address the issue in future product revisions. It remains to be seen whether the antiglare matte option will be extended to other models such as the 13" MacBook Pro and the iMac line in the future.
