TechRestore offers matte displays for 13" MacBooks

Matte screen for 13in MB

TechRestore has announced a new upgrade service that replaces the display on white and black 13-inch MacBooks with a matte-finish screen. Instead of applying an anti-glare cover, the service completely replaces the gloss-finish screen with a matte variant. All specifications are claimed to match the original, including color depth, resolution and viewing angle. The original plastic case and front bezel are reused.

The matte-finish screen replacement carries a price of $170 that includes installation, components, free return shipping and a one-year warranty on parts and labor. The company promises a 24-hour turnaround time.

    I'm really starting to hate this pigeon-holing that Apple has been doing of late. First it was the MacBookPro displays, then the Cinema Displays, then FireWire, and so on ...
