Default Mac Glossy Screen?

I'm about to purchase a Macbook Pro, and I read that there is an option to have a glossy screen or a normal. What is the benefit of having the glossy screen and what should I get?

glossy screen just provides better and clearer is really hard to clean and gets dirty faster....personally i dont think it matters, the difference is minute.

I prefer the glossy screen, the picture quality is noticeably sharper (to me), plus the viewing angle is higher so you can see the screen easier.
Also, the gloss allows you to use the laptop better in bright or outdoor conditions; the matte type screen washes out in bright light.
