at the yorkdale mall testing out their demo MBP. Compared it to the PB screen. The brightness difference is as clear as day and night! wowza!

Is that in comparison to the most recent PB? It was supposed to be a lot brighter than the previous PB (which I have, and I haven't figured out why I would want a brighter screen).

How the coating on the screen? Is it glossy/shiny or is it like the Powerbooks with that matte finish to it?

When you see the brightness comparison you'll be amazed. Not worth getting rid of the PB for the MBP just for the brightness.. its not THAT amazing, but it is sweet... oh so sweet.

As for the glossy coating like you see for many PC Laptps, nope none of that. Regular matte like the PB. I guess Apple follows the saying "If its not broke, Dont fix it".

oh and the 17inch PB is thinner than the MBP. but the 15" and 12" PB's are thicker then the MBP
