    When you put in a blank disc, you'll see a disc icon on the desktop.
    Drag the files you want to burn inside.

    Next, open up that icon (which is actually a folder), and click on the burn button. You can't miss the burn button, it's very prominent.

    Oh, i didn't know about this. I just ordered the glossy version, thinking that it should be better for photos viewing/editing as claimed on apple website. I will calibrate the monitor, hope that it doesn't affect my print too much. Thanks for the clarification

    Anyway only apple laptops have this choice. imac now only comes with glossy screen looks nice but reflections especially very irritating when you are doing video editing or photo adjustments.

    The new imac model rocks. I like its sleek and thin design, option of either 20" or 24". Plus with the updated specs, video and sound editing can be a lot of fun.

    I went with the mac mini and dell 24" route as it is cheaper and you can use your monitor for other stuff.

    I find it REALLY STUPID for the IMAC not to include a video in of some sort to allow you to use the LCD for other purposes. I have the hold 20" IMAC power PC and the screen is IPS screen and is very good. BUT I can't use it for my PC laptop, I can't use it for anything except with the imac.

    With a 24" dell, at least I can plug in my PC, PS3, PSP, etc...

    indeed u will feel some distraction at first, but once getting used to the glossy screen, u actually forget abt the reflection when doing DI.

    Glossy displays are great for watching movies, not for making them as the coating skews the colour. If you have any graphics work to do, I wouldn't suggest any glossy display. You'll finish, print, and find that the result looks terribly different than what you thought it would be.

    The reflections are bad, also, though they're better in a home where you don't have overhead lighting than in an office or outdoors.

    I won't be buying a glossy display, ever, if I can help it, but they're becoming more common.

    Even I calibrate the LCD with a hardware calibrator, I can't get accurate colours?

    The reflection coming off the screen is still a little glaring for the calibrator, which you need to place onto the LCD surface and have it read off there. Thus, it what affects your eyes might also affect the accuracy of the calibrator.

    You can try it but I seriously doubt it will work. The panel itself is probably not particularly accurate and the coating makes things worse.

    All right, I will try it and compare with another mac with matte display to see if there is any difference.
    Thanks!

    Hi, can I ask?

    Looking at both the macbook and macbook pro, is it true the option for non-glossy screen is only given for the macbook pro?

    Are there any antiglare film we can get if we were to end up with the glossy screen of the macbook?

    Thanks for any advices.
