New Apple 17 inch MacBook Pro offers anti-glare display option  
Tuesday, January 6, 2009 | by Rob Galbraith
Apple today has announced the latest iteration of its 17 inch MacBook Pro. It features a 1920 x 1280 pixel, LED-backlit display that comes in both standard glossy and optional, extra-cost anti-glare versions. The new laptop's enclosure uses the same extruded aluminum design as the 15 inch MacBook Pro and MacBook released in the fall, includes a non-removable battery with a charge life specified to be up to eight hours, plus three USB 2.0 ports, one FireWire 800 port (the FireWire 400 port of the previous generation is gone), Mini DisplayPort, ExpressCard 34 slot and CD/DVD-writing SuperDrive. The new 17 inch MacBook Pro will accept and recognize up to 8GB of RAM.

A configuration comprised of the 1920 x 1280 pixel LED-backlit display with anti-glare option, 4GB RAM, 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 320GB/7200rpm hard drive is about US$2900 in the U.S. The new model is to ship towards the end of January 2009.

As of this writing, the anti-glare feature doesn't appear to have been rolled into the available options for the MacBook or 15 inch MacBook Pro.
