Apple Has New Matte Display Option

Looks like Apple reinstated the matte display option on the 15-inch MacBook Pro, for the lovely charge of $50. WTF?

So let me get this straight.... first they change the perfectly fine matte display on the new model of the MBP to a sexy glossy screen that causes glare/reflection problems that people bitch about. Then they change the whole lineup of laptops to use the new glossy screen. People whine, and Apple Fanboys say how you just need to move your head a bit and stop whining The Steve Knows Best for us. Now they bring back the original for half a c-note. This rings back to the "black macbook" model option, where a black paint-job cost $250 (or something crazy like that).

We've never had a matte display, we've always had the glossy display.
