It's just my opinion but:

I have the penryn macbook pro and I have been very satisfied with it so far. I was taking a look at the new macbook and macbook pro models and was very disappointed to see the direction they are taking with the glossy screens. I understand that glossy does make things look more colourful and sharper but it really leaves little option for those who do prefer matte. The new design perhaps doesn't allow it but I use the aluminum imac and the reflections give me headaches after awhile because of the constant refocusing of my eyes. Then again, I may be a minority but I mean, excluding firewire 400 and not at least adding an extra usb port to make up for it?

I agree, I'm instead going to get a top-of-the-line old aluminum MBP (the last ones introduced before the new model) for $1599. That's a steal because a MacBook with similar specs would be the same or more (dual-layer burner, 2.5ghz, 2GB ram). Not to mention, I hate glossy screens. I've had a MacBook for almost three years, and light is a constant irritation. The new ones are at least twice as glare-prone/reflective.

I couldn't be happier with my Unibody MacBook, and I can't say that the glossy screen has bothered me in the least.

NOTE: Thread moved to appropriate forum. Not just anything goes in Anything Goes

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
