you don't have to replace the screen to get the glossy layer. there is a company that bonds it to the lcd. there was a guy on one of the mac forums who did this to his g3 powerbook, and it looks good.

Exactly. So could I do it with a 15" macbook pro LCD?

Besides, I have my mom's tibook here next to me and I'm using my macbook (which is comparable to the MBP) and there's not really much difference in brightness at all. The glossy is quite nice, but hardly worth going through all that for.

macbook pro screen is bigger then the powerbook screen, the powerbook screen is not as tall because there is no isight built in.
