I was looking forward to spend some time at an Apple Store next week, while I am traveling, but since all the new products are just glossy and the nearby Apple Store is closed for renovation; I am not going to bother.
I just can't understand Apple's move to glossy only screens. It is so uncomfortable to use glossy screens and the comment in the Q&A that you can position a notebook any way you want doesn't hold water. You use it on a desk or table and the reflections and glare you get is what you have. I'm not going to move desks and close curtains like in the good old days with CRT monitors. Or shy from using a notebook outside. I have used several notebooks with a glossy screen and while not two screens are the same, they're a pain to use outside to downright unusable.

I too have the now "last gen" MBP myself (got it 2 months ago) and it has the 8600M GT inside. What I'm trying to say is the wording for the new 9600M GT makes it sound as if it's an attachment that gets plugged in somewhere on the outside of the laptop. Not actually built in.

Unfortunately that means I will have to buy a laptop (when the time comes) from another vendor and run windows or Linux. Thanks Apple.... looks like I switched to all-Mac computers too soon.
