The MacBook Pro15-inch (Thunderbolt) has several screen options, all of which require that you pay a significant premium, although I can't think of many consumer laptops that have an anti-glare screen (a $150 option).
So yes, there is a non-glossy option. I find it somewhat odd that the reviewers compares the MBP to "many consumer laptop." Most of the business line models od Dell, HP, Lenovo have non-glossy displays or at least offer the option, too.
