The reason I started this poll was becos I just got a Macbook Pro and it has reflective screen too. Was trying to decide between getting a normal screen protector or matt/anti-glare one. I decided to get the matt filter as I too thought it would be glaring to my eyes if stared at for a long time. But I do like the look of graphics and movies on the glossy screen... looks more vibrant and contrasty. I think there must be some good reason that Apple chose to make their computers' screens glossy. Maybe because images have more punch.
