Antiglare on more Macs?
Apple is currently considering antiglare options for more Macs, say sources claimed to be familiar with the company's plans. In recent years Macs have migrated to a glossy display surface, which Apple describes as providing a "crisp" and "vivid" picture, along with a seamless design aesthetic. The move has engendered complaints however, as in many cases reflections can obscure onscreen images, or affect the appearance of colors.
While buyers of the 17-inch MacBook Pro can pay for antiglare protection, the option does not exist with iMacs, or even other MacBooks. It is not known precisely which Macs may gain antiglare options, but it is believed that the 13- and 15-inch MacBook Pros are the most likely candidates. Apple has indeed being paying attention to petitions and discussion threads regarding glossy displays, the sources say.
