No you want the matte screen, it cuts down on reflections and I read numerous places that the glossy screens make the screen over saturated giving you a false color. I have the 15" Macbook pro and love it. As far as cost, the equivalent sony vaio is within $100 of the MBP. You wont be able to get a great color gamut from the notebook, and if your using for color sensitive projects I would recommend a good external monitor. (I have mine hooked up to a wireless keyboard/mouse and a 24"LCD..works great)

Hope this helps,
Adam

You can use a tv, but if your planning on doing any color correction I don't know how accurate an hdtv would be, might be better off with the 20" Lcd
