  • Glossy vs AntiGlare MBP

    Hey, I'm about to buy the new MBP 15" core i7 MBP and i have a debate on wheter to order the anti glare screen or not. I have been reading forums on the web but none say more than "i like this" or "i prefer that". I use my MBP mainly for graphic design and i need to know which kind of screen is best for it! i mean, regarding color fidelity, contrast, etc.

    To wrap up: which MBP screen is best for graphic design, glossy or anti glare?

    Thx!

    This is more of a Monitor question that a MacBook Pro question, if I'm reading the question correctly.

    Personally, I am a huge fan of antiglare screens, for anything. Anything that can save my eyes a little stress is a good thing. I have the antiglare on my MacBook and my regular monitor that's hooked up to my mini.

      Thanks.
      I know anti glare is good for resting your eyes but i'm concerned about it's performance regarding color, contrast and black richness. Maybe it's better just to buy the glossy screen and, if necessary, buy the anti glare afterwards. Are the expensive?

        If you are concerned about that, do this. Head over to Best Buy and check out their monitors. They will have a selection there and you should be able to find a regular monitor with an anitglare screen sitting side by side. Then you can compare them.

        Will it be exact? Well, the colors should be the same...they won't be calibrated, but...they should be similar. Personally, when I did that test...I didn't see any noticeable difference. The only thing I did notice was that the plastic on the front of the monitor has a different sheen to it.

          You can scratch the tracing part. I found it easier just to create each neighborhood using the pen tool.

          HI All,

          I was trying to recreate the following image in Illustrator. I wanted to trace over the image and take out the text used for the neighborhoods but it's taking me a while. Can someone...

          It's especially the type with the ampersand behind it, but other issues contribute to the legibility problem throughout.

          You've used four different typefaces. It's not a hard-and-fast rule,...

          Most lace is a repeat pattern. Once you get the corner block and a running block done, it's all gravy from there... Getting it to work as a brush must take some skillz. I wouldn't want to try it, not...

          I'm not quite understanding why a 76mb 12 page doc would fail on your printer's end. That, to me anyway, is small for so many pages.
          I'd be more concerned about your boss being really mad for missing...
