That's a fairly subjective question. It all depends upon you and your  
preference. I always had matte screens on the mac laptops until the  
last time I updated. I usually buy through the Apple store getting  
refurbished units. I've been using a glossy 15" Macbook Pro for the  
last 3 years. Most of the time I am connected to a 22" screen, so that  
does not count for this discussion.

Other than having to adjust the screen for reflected light I have not  
had any problems with the glossy screen. YMMV
