I purchased a 15" MacBook Pro from my university and it came with the Anti-Glare screen as a pre-selection. Is it possible to remove the Anti-Glare screen and replace it with the Glossy screen if I purchased this; Front Glass for Apple Macbook Pro 15" Unibody (eBay item 320645692594 end time 21-Mar-11 18:46:37 AEDST) : Computers?

Hi Bruce,
I am now looking at the configuring screen for MBP on apple.com, as I am in the market for one now, and it seems like the anti-glare that you have is already an upgrade from the glossy screen. The default choice is the glossy screen and you pay more for the anti-glare. I am not so sure if you can 'go backwards' as even if you fit a front-glass to it, it might not necessary make it more glossy if yours is already anti-glare. Sorry can't help but it this more for asthetics or practicality? Cos anti-glare will certainly be more practical and glossy, I suppose looks good so it is up to you really what you are trying to achieve. Maybe if you can post to let other users know what your intentions are they may be able to give you better advice.

Bryce, just curious. What don't you like about the anti-glare screen?? My husband is looking at buying his first MBP and he wants to get the anti-glare

No that will not make it glossy. You would need to replace the entire display panel and that will be pretty expensive.

Thanks everyone! It's purely to do with the aesthetics of the screen, I know it's picky, but I don't like the white around it. Is there a screen protector or anything that will make the edges black?
