Hi,

first, I'm new here.
I'm a mac user since probably 8 years.

I presently have a MacBook 13" (black one).

I'm looking to change it.

I'll get the new one on the refurbished.

I'm lost on the new models of macbook pro 15".

What is the difference between those two?

Well according to the descriptions, the screen. Would you like to pay an extra $200 for an antiglare screen or stick with a glossy one? Otherwise it appears they are the same.

One is anti-glare screen. The $200 cheaper is the glossy screen. I won't get glossy. If you work anywhere near fluorescent lighting, they reflect in the glossy screen.

It's actually a difference of $130 canadian. This makes a bit more sense assuming that the only difference is the screen. It's up to you to choose; will you pay the $130 to have a screen that you can use in the light, or would you rather deal with the glare.

Did not think I would like the glossy when I needed a replacement but so far it has worked out well.
