I have a MacBook...glossy screen...LOVE it. Glare has not been an issue for me...
I also have a Dell (from my company...would never waste money myself on the dark side)
Has a matte screen.....I put the two side by side.
The Mac glossy screen is alive with color...I would describe it as vibrant...the colors jump out. I've had overs who have looked at the MB say the same thing.
Could glare be a problem..sure, I can see it being a problem here and there....but overall, I like the glossy screen.

I really enjoy the glossy finish. I was worried about glare but I was quite wrong. I've used my MacBook in a lot of lighting conditions with no problems whatsoever. I haven't used it outside yet or in complete daylight but from experience, matte finishes aren't exactly perfect in that instance anyway.

The glossy screen is definitely more colorful and richer than a matte screen.
The glossy is supposed to be difficult to see outside, but my matte Powerbook screen was aweful outside, so no gain or loss there.
Go to an Apple store or local dealer and compare them side by side. See what you think.
Either way, I think you will love your new Mac!

You should compare a matte and glossy Mac screen.
For comparison, I've checked out a glossy 20" iMac screen and a (good quality) 23" LG matte screen. Both have vibrant colors and have sharp picture. The difference? When the sun its the LG at an angle, the screen gets masked by a dull light. And when there is any kind of light or window anywhere behind me when I'm using the iMac, the computer becomes useless.
